The Art Institute Of Chicago, Chicago Reviews - Write a Review
Oh boy, I loved it here! This place houses many galleries and wings, and a wonderful variation of art pieces. You'll be in the presence of the fascinating art of Picasso, Roden and Monet. Medieval sculptures and art in display will take you on a journey back in time then you'll be swooped back by the modern and contemporary pieces of this day. You'll take a trip around the world as you admire the art from numerous countries including India, Asia, Brazil and the Middle East. This place has something for everyone, you won't leave disappointed!!
A true cultural gem. Many cities tend to separate their fine arts museum and modern art museums, but Chicago rolls it all into one, with exhibits ranging from the ancient to the contemporary, and the beauty doesn't stop at the museum gates; Millennium Park is right across the street. One of the best collections of American artists in the country, as well as more than a few European masters. You won't ever regret a trip here.
The wheelchair accessible family access restroom is always very clean and always stocked with the necessities. Easy to use but the hall door after you leave the restroom to get back the modern wing is a bit hard to maneuver. That is not your only option, you can move the wheelchair the opposite way down the short hall to get back into the old wing and then through the doors and ramp to circle back down to a automatic handicap door, so I rate this museum very high for accessibility
I have been to very few if any art galleries, but I found this to be quite fascinating. There's such a wide variety of Art and I found myself spending a lot more time looking at various pieces than I would have expected. My wife was looking for some specific pieces and we didn't find there mapping system to be that helpful but overall it was a great experience. The fruit basket painting was one of my favorites just because of how photo like it looks for being painted at the previous turn of the century.
Great museum, must-see. If you are in hurry - they have a map with 13 super highlights of their exposition which you will be able to cover in an hour or so. But better reserve 3+ hours for a more relaxed and more meaningful experience. Also, gift shop has surprisingly good selection.
