21c Museum Hotel
Visit or stay at 21c Museum Hotel and support the creative arts. 

The former James Hotel is now the 21c Museum Hotel Chicago, a combination boutique hotel and contemporary art space. Founders Laura Lee Brown and Steve Wilson created this hotel and museum because they were keen on art preservation and showcasing the everyday challenges and changes in the environment around them. 

Highlight Your Trip

Experience new and powerful works of art today with this multilevel venue with rotating exhibitions! The Chicago location is very unique and is represented by the Evergreen Penguin, which is meant to symbolize renewal, hope and growth with its evergreen color. 

Museum of Contemporary Art

Located across from us in the (formerly) John Hancock Center is the Museum of Contemporary Art. With a permanent collection of over 2,000 works of art, the MCA is a true Chicago gem. A step outside the transitional art sphere, you'll find this museum challenges any preconceived notions you may have had about the creative art form.

Social Impact

MCA's mission is to create a compelling center of contemporary art that is innovative enough to capture audience attention and effective enough to convey the social, historical and cultural contexts of the art of the present day. The museum has several programs addressing both financial and accessibility needs.
