  • A bit disappointed with the collection they have there - mostly pictures, photography that's on exhibition except the ones from the Japanese artist. Having said that, the gift shop is great - lots of ...  more »
  • This museum focuses on contemporary art and the collection was surprisingly small (to be fair, the Murakami exhibit was not yet opened). Some of the art is interesting to me, some is challenging and s...  more »
  • The museum might be interesting, but only 4-5 rooms are visibile as the rest is being refurbished or whatever. We paid 9$ from the 12$ for this reason, still too much to see but a very small selection...  more »

  • I like this Museum! It has dufdifferent exhibition every season, so it's new experience each time. At 1pm and 2pm there are free guided tours. They help me a lot to better understand contemporary art. Free admission for Illinois residents on Tuesdays.
  • I love this place. Sometimes they let me in for free, sometimes they don't, but regardless the art is always so cool. I'll tag along to a guided tour every now and then because I guess I don't understand art at all, and those are free and awesome as well. One time we went and Yousef Bassem was there, a former correspondent for the John Stewart show! So, TL:DR; great events, great exhibits, great price.
  • Art is way over my head... beer cans Art, paint can Art. I will return for special events/art exhibit. The "suggested" price is what you pay. Bookstore was the best part
  • What an absolute treasure! Friendly guides are great for including kids and answering questions. Space is immaculate. Take public transportation, the parking costs are painful!
  • Great place for a visit to Chicago. Admission is very reasonable and varies due to what you can provide. On Tuesday's admission is free for Illinois residents. Many different exhibits and art work.
