Highlights include:

  • Exquisite wood carvings dedicated to the Germania Club by the Oscar Mayer family
  • Relics from the Deutsches Haus at the Columbian Exposition
  • Hessen Verein standards
  • Items from dozens of restaurants including the original Red Star Inn, Schulien’s Math Igler’s Casino, the Golden Ox, among others
  • Memories of St. Boniface Church
  • Delicatessen Meyer
  • FC Hansa (german soccer club)
  • The Schiller Liedertafel
  • Schoenhofen Brewery

A great exhibit for students to learn about German-American culture and community in Chicago. For more information, download the Educator's Guide and set-up a guided tour.
