Kids on the swing

Historic Navy Pier® is Chicago's lakefront playground and the Midwest’s premier leisure destination, attracting more than 8.9 million visitors in 2013.

Navy Pier showcases a unique collection of restaurants, theaters, attractions and sightseeing and dining cruises in additional to unequaled recreation and exhibition facilities – in a setting like no other! Navy Pier is open year-round (with the exception of Christmas and Thanksgiving Day) and there is no admission to enter the Pier itself. Attractions within Navy Pier may have admission prices and those prices can be obtained from each individual attraction’s box office.

Please Pardon Our Dust: Building Excitement for a Reimagined Navy Pier

Navy Pier is currently in the midst of an important project that will reimagine it into a bolder, greener and more contemporary urban space for decades to come.

All pedestrians can walk the south dock from west to east to access outdoor restaurant seating areas (open seasonally), Ferris Wheel and dining and sightseeing cruise boats. For more information please click here.

Navy Pier will continue with normal operating hours found here throughout this process and select full-service restaurants, boats and theaters will keep extended hours as their event schedules dictate. The East and West indoor parking garages located on Navy Pier, which can accommodate 1,500 vehicles, are open and easily accessible from Illinois Street and Lake Shore Drive. For a route map to the parking garages and traffic flow click here.

Come experience all that Navy Pier has to offer!
