    I am in love with this museum! I wish I had more days to explore and enjoy it; if I were a local, I would definitely purchase a membership. Don't forget to flash your student ID when buying a ticket!

    Great museum with really nice exhibitions! I got in for free because I used my Bank of America card the first weekend of the month. The three cheese macaroni is also good in the cafe downstairs.

    This is by far my fave museum of them all. The Impressionist gallery is magnificent and the Modern Art wing is very complete, packed with Picasso's, Klee's, Miró's and many more master pieces.

    Great cultural place in Chicago. Their impressionist section is huge, many Monets and Renoirs. Amazing 6 of 16 Monet's haystacks. The Van Gogh's are very different from the New York museum collection.
