The Ryan Learning Center offers free art-making for kids, as well as Journey Maker, a new digital interactive tool that allows your family create their own tour of the museum.

The Art Institute boasts the largest collection of impressionist art outside of Paris.
Ponder the mesmerizing 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.

After years of meticulous conservation and a complete gallery renovation, the museum recently welcomed its beloved collection of early European arts to its new home in The Deering Family Galleries of Medieval and Renaissance Art, Arms, and Armor. The installation features nearly 700 objects from the Middle Ages and Renaissance, including monumental altarpieces, exquisite jewelry, and armored figures on horseback.

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.
