Beautiful outside pic takes. The large Lions adorn the Museum entrance & make for a perfect pic! There's a moderate to enter the Museum, but outside is free & fun. During Chicago events these Lions wear our team apparel! A must see when in Chicago!

As my family and I strolled through the compound we saw many priceless works of art. We went from Warhol to the Impressionists, then on to the Mannerists, then to the Flemish, and finally to Picasso’s masterpieces.

We paid $25.00 each. It would be less if we were active duty military.

Yes, you can leave and then come back in on the same day. Just be sure to keep your ticket as you will need to show it in order to re-enter without having to pay again.
