Spend the day lingering over one of the finest collections of art in the world 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 square feet 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.

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.
