Join us for our Get Lit museum nights, a monthly after-hours event series on the second Tuesday of every month from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. Simply sitting at a bar is so last year. Instead, spend your happy hours in downtown Chicago by exploring the AWM’s exhibits with a refreshing beverage in hand. Each Get Lit event features a different theme and we’ll have special activities based on that theme such as live music, poetry exercises, open mics, book swaps and more. Tuesday happy hours at the AWM are the most LIT happy hours in the Loop, trust us. Get Lit events are $15 for AWM members and $25 for non-members. Tickets include admission to the museum and drink tickets for two complimentary beverages. Additional drink tickets are available for purchase. Guests must be 21+ to attend Get Lit. Funds raised at this event will go towards the AWM’s Write In Youth Education Program that serves middle and high school students from under-resourced schools.


Drink tickets for two complimentary beverages included with ticket. Additional drink tickets are available for purchase. Access to all exhibits. Activations/Entertainment.
