Ruth Bader Ginsburg was not just an attorney and judge, but a woman of huge heart, giant vision, and remarkable work ethic. She also became a cultural icon, gaining the attention and respect of so many through her humor, workouts, and fashion sense, using her collars to indicate her dissenting point of view for Supreme Court decisions.

Join our virtual public tour of hit exhibit Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg as we recognize the late Supreme Court Justice’s commitment to changing society. The virtual tour includes a video presentation featuring Chief Curator of Collections and Exhibitions, Arielle Weininger, and live Q&A moderated by Museum personnel.

The architectural features of Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center affirm its place as both monument and memorial. Designed by renowned architect Stanley Tigerman, who created the 65,000-square-foot space, our building incorporates historical and emotional symbolism as a response to the apocalyptic inhumanity of the Holocaust.

On this outdoor-only tour, we will explore the exterior features of our Museum, including the Ferro Fountain of the Righteous, and how architectural spaces influence our emotional responses.

Tours are limited to 10 participants. Please come dressed for outdoor weather – the tour will run unless there is heavy rain or snow. Tickets for Architecture Tours include Museum admission for those who would like to explore our exhibitions.

Members: Free; Non-members: $10
