    Amazing, beautiful museum
  • Mandalyn R.
    World class. The 1930s: America After the Fall exhibit is exceptional - showing until 10/18.
  • Mariana P.
    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.

    Absolute must visit! One time is definitely not enough: great selection of art and temporary exhibitions are very well curated. If nothing else, you'll get lost at their souvenir and book shop later..

    Great museum. Some fantastic Impressionist classic paintings of Monet, Manet and Renoir.
  • Miharu C.
    Enter through the Modern Wing on the Monroe side rather than the front entrance. Usually there is no line or a super short one compared to the main entrance on Michigan.

    Van Gogh's bedroom was less interesting than I thought and overcrowded. The other parts are pretty okay. Make sure that you have at least a half day for this museum.

    Amazing place. So much to see. Pace yourself if you visit w/ children. We left at 3 hours since it got a bit too boring for him - especially because the armor exhibit was closed. Will come back!

    The Art Institute is a must see when in Chicago, with interesting and well curated exhibitions. Check out the free days, even though the ticket is well worth it.

    Besides being rated the world's best museum, the exhibit space, theater, lounge areas & just the authentic Chicago air (+Lions) are #EPIC
