The Illinois Council of The American Institute of Architects ( AIA Illinois ) has named Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center as one of Illinois' 200 Great Places, in honor of the state's bicentennial in 2018.
The announcement was made as part of National Architecture Week, on April 12.
Nominations came from architects from all parts of the state and were selected by AIA regional chapters. Nominations were weighed against criteria including the AIA's "10 Principles of Livable Communities."
The museum holds architecture tours every second Sunday and last Saturday of each month, from 11 a.m-12 p.m. The tours are free with museum admission and do not require reservations. See IllinoisHolocaustMuseum.org .
