the new modern wing is a must see & grab a bite...
The Modern Wing is amazing. One of my favorite places in the city.
One of the great museums of the world: Exhibits span 5,000 years, and the Impressionist and post-Impressionist collections are the highlight. – Green Guide Editor
The home of such homegrown masterpieces as Grant Wood's American Gothic and Edward Hopper's Nighthawks.
This museum has one of the most notable collections of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art. Housed in an impressive Beaux-Arts building, the collection is world-renowned.
You can't leave without taking a photo - or 20 - of the iconic lions.
If you haven't seen it yet, get there ASAP. Still one of the finest museums in the world.
Must reserve at Terza Piano resto located in the new Modern Wing of the museum...Excellent food and amaZing view!
See some of the finest impressionist/post-impressionist art collection in the world here. See a Van Gogh self-portrait, Hopper's Nighthawks, Monet's Wheatstacks, and Woods's American Gothic.
We have one of the BEST art museums in the country, right here on Michigan Avenue. I could just hang out at the Art Institute of Chicago all day, and get lost in truly beautiful creations in art.
