We  encourage fans to take public transit to the venue as opposed to driving, since parking can be limited. The nearest stops are the Roosevelt Red Line stop, Museum Campus/11th St Metra stop, or the 146 bus, which will take fans as far as the Adler Planetarium.

For parking, we advise booking in advance from here. The Adler Planetarium lot is the closest, with additional parking located at the Soldier Field North Lot.
