While both are worth the visit, you do not want to miss the Museum. The Art Institute is a landmark in Chicago and it is renowned for its dedication to the Arts and its commitment to providing the best experience to all visitors.

The Museum collection is extensive, and features diverse themes created by artists from around the world. African American, contemporary, classic European, Eastern, modern photography, textiles, and sculpture are among the many themes that can be explored. Audio guides, personal tours, and group events are available and can also be arranged in advance.

The Museum is unique in its approach to accommodating families. Workshops and fun interactive experiences for children are always available.

Although food is not allowed in the Museum’s galleries, there are two restaurants to enjoy: the Garden Café for al fresco dining, and the Terzo Piano for gourmet Italian cuisine.

The Museum is located at 111 South Michigan Avenue in the heart of Chicago. The best way to get there is on the ‘El’ train or the Metra. Underground parking lots are located a couple of blocks away.
