Wrigley Building Tours

star-3.5
5 Reviews
Wrigley Building
The 1920s were an important time for Chicago architecture, and when the Wrigley Building opened in 1925, it set the pace for the city’s development. When owner William Wrigley Jr. (of the Wrigley gum company) scouted locations for the building that would become his company’s headquarters, he chose a unique triangle shape of land that eventually became the bustling Magnificent Mile.

The Basics
Standing tall at the point where Michigan Avenue crosses the Chicago River, this crown jewel of Chicago architecture is best known for its iconic clock tower, which draws inspiration from the Seville Cathedral Giralda Tower. The Wrigley Building is perfectly situated so pedestrians, cars, and even boats can see it from various angles. You’ll likely see the building on most architecture and history tours, as well as river cruises. Alternatively, its central location makes it an ideal spot to visit on your own.

Things To Know Before You Go
  • The Wrigley is a must-see building for architecture enthusiasts.
  • Bring your walking shoes to explore other nearby architectural gems.
  • See it as part of a Chicago architecture tour or visit on your own.

How To Get There
Conveniently situated off Michigan Avenue, near the Chicago River, the Wrigley Building is an easy walk from many other Chicago landmarks. City buses 850, 851, 855, and 856 stop at the Michigan/Wrigley Bldg. bus station located outside. If arriving by subway stop at the Grand/State station and take  a short walk to the building.

When To Get There
Since the building is walkable from many other landmarks, it’s easy to make a stop at any point of your visit. You can view the lobby anytime during regular business hours. In the warmer months, see the building light up at night with the rest of the skyline while on a river cruise.

Magnificent Mile
The Wrigley Building is located just off Magnificent Mile, Chicago’s bustling main thoroughfare full of restaurants, hotels, and shopping. It’s also home to other Chicago architectural landmarks like the Tribune Tower, the John Hancock Center, the Park Tower, the Palmolive Building, and more. 
Address: 400-410 North Michigan Avenue, Chicago 60611, USA
