Overlooking Lake Michigan to the east and the historic Water Tower to the west, the MCA is located in the heart of Streeterville. Nestled between two neighborhood parks—Seneca and Lake Shore—we are proud to be an asset to our local community, and we care deeply about being a good neighbor. Below is an overview of information and programs that benefit our neighbors.
We're thrilled to announce that the MCA is back open! Our new hours are Friday through Sunday, 11 am to 6 pm, with the first hour reserved for people with an increased risk. Advance reservations are encouraged and admission is free for a limited time. Learn more about the precautions we are taking on our Safety page.
