The Old Lighthouse Museum Events

This Saturday July 25, we will have a short S.S. Eastland Memorial Service starting at 10:00 AM.

It will be dockside at Millennium Park. This will be the 105th year anniversary of the tragedy. Masks are required for attendance. The Museum and the surrounding grounds are closed to the public.

"Eastland Chicago's Deadliest Day" a documentary produced and written by Moshman and Coppola will be aired on WTTW Chicago, channel 11-1, on Friday, July 24 at 9:00pm (CST) and Sunday, July 26 at 1:00am (CST). This will be the second year that this documentary has aired on WTTW. It is well worth watching to learn and give remembrance to the Eastland disaster.
