The View Path

The View Path and its mobile tour app highlight distinct features of Grant Park that carry on Burnham’s legacy.

This 16-stop, 1.6-mile self-guided walking tour stretches from Cloud Gate in Millennium Park to the Museum Campus — the future site of the Burnham View. A graphic panel exhibit at either end of the View Path expands on the Burnham story and provides wayfinding information. As you stroll along the View Path, look for markers that guide you from one stop to the next.
