"Innovative Museum!" Museum of Contemporary Art Tip by staindesign

Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago: 12 reviews and 14 photos

  entrance of the museum

I really love this museum, they have modern art with is nice. But they are really ahead of the game, their current exhibit: Massive Change is brillant! This exhibit is very thought provoking. And they have a great deal now, if you can't make it on tuesdays which are free the enterence is $10 per person. But if you take some batteries or an old cell phone to be recycled, you can get in with a 2 for 1 deal!

They have a Wolf Gang Pucks(not sure if i spelled that right). It looks nice but it is very expensive. This is something strange, but the museum air seems really dry, I felt very thirsty the whole time I was there. Maybe drink alot before you go, you can't carry a drink around with you.

One last thing, Infront of the building there is a car that looks like it was dropped from high above and is sunk into the ground. I forgot to take a picture of it. It is really cool! And the other thing that stinks is that you can't have a camera in the museum, there are so many cool things there, but i suppose that is why you can photograph them. And no pens either! (i guess because they think you might go crazy and start writing on everything!)

(a friend of mine just went to the museum and now I have a picture of the car sunk in the ground)
