Rated the #1 Museum in America, The Art Institute is one of the things that defines Chicago. A great place to think or study, the institute is a constant reminder that creative genius does exist.

From January 6th – February 12th, the Art Institute is free to Illinois residents visiting Monday – Friday. Thursdays from 5 pm – 8 pm are always free for residents.
