    Wide and different collections but without a guide was very confusing, ending up with a fast walk around.Security staff was very very rude at the moment of closing while I was reading the last panel.

    Check out the new Modern wing, designed by Renzo Piano. The gallery space is as impressive as the artwork.

  • Marion D.

    Incredible collection of impressionist art (Manet, Monet, Degas). You'll have to spend an entire day there to see it all.

    My favorite art museum in Chicago, you must go there. The Picassos' collection on the 3th floor is amazing.

    Ferris Bueller fan? Anyone? Anyone? 🎨😄 Check out a mini-tour of 6 works from the movie. 🎬🎥 This handy guide is available at the Michigan Ave entrance.

    Don't wander too close to a Charles Ray sculpture! You'll set off a sensor alarm! At least, photography is allowed. 📷🎨😳

    Member's card is no longer enough to breeze through. They're also checking IDs. Slows the line down considerably. 😁🎨

    Absolutely worth getting a membership here if you're a local: you'll get news about amazing events and priority entry. Also going on week days right when the museum opens is the way to go!

    My absolute favorite museum, and totally worth the visit for both locals and tourists!

    Maybe the most beautiful, interesting museum I have ever been to! If you are in town you better come here.

    If you are just like me and you know you don't have a clue about art, do yourself a favor and get the audio guide.

    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.

    Chris Kemp · July 28

    Don't miss the haunting blue Picasso.

    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!!

    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.

    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.

    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
