Skydeck Chicago, an observation deck on the 103rd floor of the city’s iconic Willis Tower, debuted its 30,000-square-foot interactive museum showcasing the culture, history, neighborhoods, and sights of the Windy City through seven curated exhibit spaces. Alongside the stunning views of the city, neighboring states, and Lake Michigan, the Skydeck’s new museum allows individuals and groups alike to gain deeper insight into the tales of Chicago.

The Skydeck also offers a separate space on the 99th floor of the tower specifically for private events. “The space is 8,000 square feet with a panoramic, 360-degree view of up to four states,” says Randy Stancik, general manager of Skydeck Chicago at Willis Tower. “It makes an amazing backdrop for your event that will create a wonderful impression for you and all your guests.” The event space can accommodate up to 300 reception-style and 150 for a seated dinner.

And if they have the gall, attendees can check out The Ledge at Skydeck Chicago, an all-glass balcony that extends 4 feet beyond the Willis Tower walls and provides breathtaking views of the city below at a height of 1,353 feet in the air. And yes, this does mean that the balcony floor is also glass, so best not to look down.
