“Their art collection is a true treasure!”
Reviewed 3 March 2012

Studied there for a while. School is great. Food is good but pricey. Always enjoy going there for special exhibits.

“Great variety of Art.”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

Fourth trip to Chicago and I finally made it to the museum. Superb collection of impressionism art. Overall the museum is fantastic, but the layout can be somewhat confusing. Highly recommend.

I could have spent the whole day looking at those tiny dioramas! Like a peak into interior design of the past.
