Description

Spend the day lingering over one of the world’s finest collections of art at The Art Institute of Chicago. Download the mobile experience, with audio tours and a location-aware map to help you plot a course through the museum’s 1 million sq ft of exhibit space, the second largest in the country, which showcases 300,000 works of art.

The Art Institute boasts the largest collection of impressionist art outside of Paris. Ponder the mesmerising landscape of Seurat’s A Sunday on La Grande Jatte and peer into the 19th-century before Gustav Caillebotte's Paris Street; Rainy Day. In the American collection, marvel at iconic works like the Nighthawks diner scene by Edward Hopper and the Midwestern farmer and daughter depicted in Grant Wood’s American Gothic.

Grab a bite to eat at one of the museum's 3 restaurants if you need a break, and be sure to stop in one of the 2 gift shops for an art-inspired souvenir.

Staff was of very little help. Guided tour was canceled. Had to wait 35 minutes for lunch, since we had not booked a table. Impressive place otherwise.

I enjoyed being able to go through the museum without a group and being able to listen with the aid of the app.
