    Wonderful art museum! I was there for a morning/afternoon, but could have stayed for days. Don't miss it! 🎨💕

    Amazing exhibits but the entry price is ridiculous. $19 for a student is obscene.

    Definitely check the American Art collection. Generally, an impressive collection of stuff that you wouldn't see any where else. The restaurant also is quite good!!

    Hey The Art Institute of Chicago, you should join Freebie! It’s pretty rad and the benefits are great for both you and me. Check it out!

    Kickass modern art collection. I was floored by how many famous modern pieces they have. Go straight to the modern wing and get a crash-course on who's who in 20th century art.

    Sehr beeindruckende Ausstellung! Man kann sich leider leicht verlaufen, aber es steht überall freundliches Personal zur Hilfe bereit.

  • Jason

    Budget lots of time. Lots to see here. I could easily spend 2 full days here. They open at 10:30am on weekends, get there early to avoid line ups so you have enough time. I wished they opened earlier.

    Beautiful museum, nice view, great permanent pieces. Huge though and probably better for a quiet rainy day.

  • Gemita G.

    Pide la audio guía en español, no trae todas las obras cargadas, pero si tiene algunas de las mejores.

  • Evelyn T.

    El museo es muy grande, planea bien qué visitar para no perder ahí todo el día. Vale la pena comprar el ticket combo aquí para subir a la torre Sears (ahora Willis)aquí hay menos fila lo agradecerás.

    Beautiful art, but don't take pictures inside the museum and share them on social media. Do you need to track a mobile phone? Highster Mobile can help. Read more

    One of the best art museums in the world. When you start to tire, check out the smaller exhibitions like the glass paperweights and mini rooms.

    Check out the "Ireland: Crossroads of Art and Design, 1690-1840" before it leaves June 21, 2015. Great pieces of art work

    Restrooms on lower level on Michigan Ave side are closed for renovation! Yay. Aim for Modern Wing street level entrance if that's your first stop. 😳

  • John B.

    Miniature throne rooms are my favorite! A collection of interiors through the ages. It's a must see. Go right to the basement. It's under the grand staircase in the main entrance. First place I go!
