I have been to the Met, the High, the Guggenhiem, MOMA, but I have to say that the exhausting day we spent at the AI was beyond wonderful.

The Art Institute is always worth a visit, with a pleasing series of temporary exhibitions anchored by very good permanent collections, particularly the French Impressionists.

I compromised with my students that if they wanted to go to a baseball game they had to go to this museum. They were dragging their feet on the way from the L. Once inside and I gave them a mission assignment to explore in pairs with chaperons, they were amazed with the art and artifacts as was I! They have student rates! You need more than an hour to do some justice.

Our favorite part was finding the artwork featured in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and taking a few photos. I was happily surprised that prices were not as high as I expected, and children under 14 are free. There are also other discounts for Chicago residents, students, seniors. A great collection of beautiful art!

This is a fabulous art museum with a wide variety of exhibits including a large collection of miniature rooms, great photigraghy, interesting paperweights, good impressionists, and some fun surprises. We were able to leave and go out for lunch and return ready for more.
