Mayor Lightfoot: Stay Home. Hit Play.


Mayor Lightfoot’s series, in collaboration with Citadel, will bring engaging, educational programming from Chicago’s cultural gems to students across the city. Every Wednesday, viewers will go behind the scenes with the Mayor at the city’s museums and cultural institutions.

Museum curators and staff, along with Mayor Lightfoot, will lead virtual tours of their most popular exhibits and share hidden treasures not typically seen by the average museum-goer. You’ll see places like Shedd Aquarium, the Field Museum, the DuSable Museum of African American History, the Museum of Science and Industry, the National Museum of Mexican Art, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Lincoln Park Zoo.

Each weekly episode will include corresponding worksheet activities to further engage students and cement the day’s learnings. These worksheets can be found on the program’s official website, hitplaychicago.org.
