Best Times to Visit


Cantigny Park has many things to see and do no matter when you visit; however, many schoolchildren visit the Robert R. McCormick Museum during the school year. Tour availability cannot be guaranteed before 2 pm during school tour season, March-May and September-October. We suggest you try to plan your visit in the afternoon on school days. 
Weekend days in good weather are always crowded. We suggest you plan your McCormick Museum weekend visit for earlier in the day.

Tickets are free but tours fill up early on busy days. Stop at the McCormick Museum first and get a ticket for your preferred time. Limit 10 per group.
Groups of 10 or more may make reservations two weeks in advance at 630.260.8162 or by emailing Register@Cantigny.org.
