Calling all Office lovers: opening October 15th, the Office Experience in Chicago is a fully immersive interactive celebration of the most quoted TV show in history. If you love ~Beets, Bears, and Battlestar galatica~ then don’t miss your chance to step inside your favorite mid-level Scranton paper company, in Chicago!
How it works
You’ll have the opportunity to peruse set recreations in the popular TV show like the (slightly depressing) Dunder Mifflin offices and Dwight’s infamous Schrute Farms. Will be Mose be at the Office pop-up in Chicago? Unconfirmed. Get an up-close and exclusive look at original show props. Kevin’s chili…mmmm. Plus, you’ll be able to shop at The Office Experience Store. Grab Andy’s beloved Nard Dog crewneck sweater, Michael’s World’s Best Boss coffee mug, or Dwight’s stapler (not in a Jell-O mold though, unfortunately).
Location and time
The Office Experience is located on the Mag Mile. Or more specifically, at 540 N Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL 60611 on the corner of Michigan Ave and Ohio Street. It’s part of The Shops at North Bridge. The Office pop-up experience will take about 60-90 minutes but it goes fast! That’s what she said.
You can take pictures and videos
Feel free to take snaps or videos throughout the space. Capture your own talking head interviews, recreate Threat Level Midnight or give Jim-style camera looks (you know that look). Don’t forget to share on social with #TheOfficeExperience so all your friends can be totally jealous.
Tickets and other tidbits
You’ll need to arrive at the Office pop-up in Chicago 10 minutes ahead of your time slot. If someone in your party is not feeling well (including yourself), your ticket can be adjusted for a different date and time. Make sure you contact the team ahead of time. Masks will be required! General admission for the Office Experience starts at $37.50 – get your tickets here before they sell out. And if you really want to dial up the fun, request Kevin, Meredith, Stanley or other Office favorites on Cameo ahead of time!
