The Office Experience Arrives In Chicago

The Office fans can relive their favorite moments in the series when The Office Experience opens its doors in Chicago on October 15.

Chicago plays home to the largest official interactive fan experience based on The Office to date. The experience is created by Superfly X and Universal Live Entertainment in consultation with The Office’s U.S. creator Greg Daniels. You can visit The Office Experience at The Shops at North Bridge on the Magnificent Mile at 540 N. Michigan Ave., located at the corner of N. Michigan Ave. and E. Ohio St. For ticket information, please click here.

The interactive two-story experience features 17 rooms filled with original props and costumes, set re-creations and more as fans visit Scranton Business Park and other sites associated with the beloved series. Guests can take photos throughout the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company. Among the photo ops are Pam’s desk, Michael’s office, Ryan’s closet, as well as Schrute Farms. Meanwhile, you can relive moments from iconic episodes and moments such as Kevin’s Chili Spill and Beach Day. Other rooms commemorate the Dundie Awards and Jim and Pam’s love story. On the first level, the retail store doubles as a replica of the Warehouse. The store will be open to ticketed and non-ticketed customers.

In addition to photo ops, you can also bring home a personalized Dunder Mifflin employee badge for $10 (pre-order with ticket) or $15 (in-person).

Tuesday offered the first of two press days to tour the experience. The following are select highlights from my tour since I’ve been known to overdo it when it comes to photos.
