The art institute is an outstanding place and is also a must have visit to learn about the outstanding culture that this beautiful country had in terms of arts. It gives a good view of the impact from various other countries as well. It was great to see the Indian artist also featuring in this beautiful place. Swami Vivekananda spoke at this place and I wanted to see this place for several years...Had a fantastic time. The only challenge was limited time at my end....however made the best use with what I had!
Great place and amazing collection. It would take days to properly see it all. I loved the Impressionist area & the miniature rooms in the basement are also amazing. So BIG. One star off for high prices as it is high entrance fee. Plus entrance fee only good for ONE day. It would be nice for tourists if the ticket was good for more than one day as seeing it all in one day impossible. I would have gone back if I did not have to pay again the next day. Ending on good note, food & beverage areas are excellent with many options. Lot's of places to sit.
Amazing! You'll need more than one day to see the whole museum. Or if you just do the highlights, Give yourself at least 4 hours, and comfortable shoes. Also, splurge on the self guided audio tour. We didn't, and regretted it. Next time we'll know better.😊
I sometimes can be difficult to sell on art museums but this museum was fantastic. I enjoyed the easy to navigate setup allowing you to pin point styles of art you enjoy. Staff is stationed throughout the facility with one usually never as far as 50 feet. This museum definitely takes a few hours and that is flying through to see everything. Definitely recommend.
This place is HUGE! Wear your walking shoes. You will definitely need to spend a whole day here to feel like you've made the best if your trip. There are so many rooms of gorgeous art, sculptures, and paintings. It is definitely one of the best art museums I've been to. It is up there with the Hermitage.
