Art Institute of Chicago

Inaugurated in 1879 as an Academy of Fine Arts, the Art Institute of Chicago is one of the most visited cultural institutions in the world and is also the 2nd largest museum in the United States, attracting over 1.5 million visitors annually. Situated in the heart of Chicago’s verdant Grant Park, a breathtaking Modern Wing was added in 2009 designed by Renzo Piano, expanding the museum’s surface to over 100,000 m2. Home to a collection of over 260,000 art works spanning 5,000 years of human expression, the institute is famous for its extensive collection of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and American paintings. The Art Institute of Chicago is also home to a fascinating library, classrooms, studios, an auditorium and a school of cinema, making this a quintessential cultural landmark to visit in Chicago.
