My Experience: I visited The Art Institute of Chicago museum during one of my all day trips to Chicago. The museum is huge, literally takes all day to go through it all. There are so many great arts to see in one day: paintings, sculptures, vases, figurines, antique furniture, etc. Each room simply takes your breath away because the arts are truly amazing. This museum is for all ages because young and old alike can still learn about great arts and artists.

Pros: so much knowledge to gain, so much beauties to see, and history is before your eyes

Cons: not that I’m aware of

I rate it 5 stars!
