The Art Institute of Chicago is a world-reknowned art museum with world-famous arwork! It is most well known for housing Grant Wood's American Gothic, Edward Hopper's Nighthawks, and an impressive collection of Impressionist art from famous artists such as Gauguin, Monet, Manet, Cassatt, Seurat, Van Gogh, and many more! The museum is well worth the visit just to see the Impressionist art, but there is much to see beyond that!

The museum offers modern art, American art, and photography along with many pieces of artwork and historical artifacts from Asia, Africa, the Americas, Europe, and the Middle East. The artwork in these exhibits may not be as iconic as the Impressionist art, but they are well worth taking the time to explore. Give yourself plenty of time in this museum to wander around and see everything!

Entrance is $18 for adults and $12 for students.
