The Office Experience Makes a U.S. Debut in Chicago October 15

Chicago is becoming a hot spot for TV show experiences. Last year, Friends debuted in Chicago, with fans getting goosebumps and even shedding tears as they walked on the re-created iconic set of one of the most notorious sitcoms. Now making its world premiere in Chicago on October 15 (through January 17th), The Office experience, provides the same level of detail to these unparalleled nostalgic experiences.

The Office Experience in Chicago - On Set - Windy City Cosmo

From the moment you walk into The Office Experience (540 M Michigan Ave on the Mag Mile), you will be transported to the world of Dunder Mifflin Paper Company. Literally, there are boxes of paper lining the warehouse shelves with a forklift. You start your journey or as it felt, your first day at the office at the “That’s What She Said” mural as you ride the escalator. You can immediately check-in. Foran upgrade, get your very own Dunder Mifflin employee badge. Felt very legit.
