The Art Institute of Chicago
From popular Rembrandt masterpieces to recent works by lesser-known artists, the Art Institute of Chicago houses one of the finest art collections in the world. Spanning centuries of human creativity, exhibits include a distinguished collection of prints and drawings, an internationally acclaimed collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings, sculptures, photographs, Asian, African and American arts, architectural drawings, textiles and more. Many pieces are on loan from the famed Terra Foundation for American Art. Educational programs and guided museum tours are available. Art books, reproductions, postcards and other items are available in the museum shop. Free public lectures are given during weekends.
There so much to see, almost too much. The modern art is my favorite part. American Gothic was a little disappointing, because it is hard to find and really small, but everything ells is great. It is pricey, but worth it.
I have only one complaint................The Courtyard has been changed to a menu only facility - it has always been an option to the cafeteria dining area - this is fine - except - it should be duly noted when one is ordering their food at the cafeteria - once you've made that decision, you are not allowed to go out into the Courtyard to eat - I was there yesterday with my 2 granddaughters who were extremely disappointed - we've always eaten outside in past summers!

I loved the hotdog art that they set up for the kids. The atmosphere of the insatution was great! Lovely opera playing in the background while we walked around looking at the skydiving pickles. God I loved the picture of pooh bear sitting on the fence by his butt waiting to watch his bananas to grow! Very realistic! I wish they could have put the picture of the govener of California when he swam ontop of the fish while looking for his wife in its belly button.

Although not one of the country's larger 'Chinatowns', the main drag on Wentworth Avenue is worth the brief side trip
