Art Institute, Chicago: 95 reviews and 165 photos
I've only been to a couple art museums in my day, but this is definitely my favorite! In fact, I've been there three times now! Anyway, there are thousands of famous pieces of art, many that are recognizable at first glance. For exmample, 'Nighthawks,' by Hopper, is the one with the little night cafe on a deserted street. Or they have 'American Gothic,' the one with the stoic famer and wife, holding the pitchfork. There are a number of pieces by Picasso, more recognizable, as well as a number of impressionist paintings. My favorite painting here, by far, is 'Sunday Afternoon on the Island of Le Grande Jatte' by Seurat... I know I slaughtered the title and the French there. Anyway, great painting that I highly reccommend seeking out while you're there.
