I'm biased toward the Impressionists and the collection compares with Musee D'Orsay.

Every visit to Chicago has included a tour of the Art Institute. The building itself is a wonderful sight to behold! The relatively small size allows for a great tour even when time is limited. It is currently going under some renovation but it is being handled well without distracting from the exhibits. There are plenty of detour signs and people ready to help direct you. Go for an hour or for the whole day:) The permanant collections are well worth the time and effort- the visiting exhibits are a bonus!
