About This Tour


In this virtual program on the World’s Columbian Exposition of 1893, uncover what human eyesight, galloping horses, and a missed Chicago deadline have in common. 

Then, celebrate the fathers of modern movies and that time they filmed Chicago's famous Ferris wheel.

NOTE: You can book this HD video tour by itself, or if you need a longer program (60 min.), mix and match it with another 30-minute adventure. Easy as that!
