Cirque du Soleil’s VOLTA
There is no shuttle and NO SIGNAGE (unlike the one to the Hamilton Exhibition), so if you walk from the start of Museum Campus (Columbus and 11th) ... it's slightly over a mile to walk there. Or take buses #130/146 ... that will take you behind the Field Museum/next to the Adler Planetarium ... but there's still quite a circuitous, unmarked walk to the tents.
Parking is convenient on the lot at Soldier Field but way over priced in my opinion. They don't have to charge $25 per car. Would love to know if other nearby parking is available.
Popcorn at the concessions was stale for $8 and poor in taste. When I made a purchase for a shirt and flower head piece I was shocked when the cashier handed me the items without a bag. The bag had to be purchased for $6 ridiculous. Parking was $25. Eat n drink before you go...the show was very entertaining.
The weather was 60 degrees. I wore A winter sweater. Air conditioning was intense and it was a cold summer night, so bring layers. Everyone was casual, but we dressed upscale casual & that was fine, too.
Parking in the lot right next to the volta tent is $25. South lot which is only two minute walk to the entrance.
