Chicago’s pride and joy, this art museum is rich in many treasures. A Beaux-Art triumph, the building was built in 1893 and over a century, has gathered some priceless collections. Lovers of Picasso, Monet and Matisse will be delighted, as will other impressionist aficionados. The photography collection is massive, as is the collection of arms and armor, or Asian art work dating back to about 5000 years ago. The Museum's recent expansion added a shop, a cafe and a restaurant, so yes, take the whole day off and spend it here, with lunch in between exhibits.

Undoubtedly one of the best art museums in the United States. I have a particular soft spot for impressionism, and their Monet collection is breathtaking. Even if you don't view yourself as an "art person," The Art Institute is worth the visit. It is the quietest, most peaceful place in the city, and there is so much more here than paintings on canvas. They supply a fascinating window into history. Make sure to ask what kind of promotional rates they have too; I asked if that had a student discount (which they do- 50% off), and they asked if we are Illinois residents, because if so, it would be free admission that day!
Probably one of my favorite art museums I've ever visited. There are many great exhibits worth seeing! We don't know much about art but recognized many of the famous works there. We spent at least 4 hours there. The only downside is that the layout of the museum is not very logical. It made it difficult to efficiently see the exhibits since we had to go back through areas that we have already been through to get to the other exhibits.
Amazing! The staff was kind and understanding if you touched the rope, the actual artwork was breathtaking, and the building is very big and open. The food is decent for an art institute. A must see is the miniature rooms. I would recommend buying a membership if you live in or near Chicago, that way, you don't have to stand in line to buy tickets, and get in quicker. Overall though, one of the best art places out there!!!
Spent 6 hours walking around and wish I could have stayed longer. Amazing exhibits and layout, you won't be disappointed. But your tickets in advance (fast pass) so you can avoid the line and have dollars for the bag/coat check - very nice to leave my coat and bag and walk around with nothing. The art is amazing. Must stop here and see it all.
Fantastic gallery. Artwork was amazing. Entry was 10$ for students. Would go again in a heartbeat. Only thing to keep in mind is you have to prioritize where you want to go and what you want to see. We were lined up before they opened and stayed until closing (besides a nearby lunch break, did I mention you were allowed re-entry as long as you had your ticket?) and we still didn't get to see everything. Also the museum layout is confusing but the security staff are super helpful and nice when you ask them for directions.
