Elmhurst Art Museum


The Elmhurst Art Museum is an arts complex with three distinct areas of focus. A balance of art, education, and architecture programming is central to our efforts of inspiring and enriching our community. We strive to hold public art events, as well as educational hands-on activities, related to rotating contemporary art exhibitions and the celebration of the McCormick house, a rare single-family home designed by Mies van der Rohe.

The Elmhurst Art Museum is located in Elmhurst, 25 minutes from downtown Chicago by public transportation (Metra).

Tours and talks often held on Saturdays. Check our website for updated event listings.

The McCormick House is one of only three residences designed and built by Mies in the United States – and one of only two open to the public.
