  • All is close except the modern gallery. Travel so far for nothing and the webpage don't indicate that is under construction. What a shame on the museum.
  • This museum exceeded my expectations. The art inside was intricate and unique with a variety of pieces from around the world and different times. It's also a decent size and well worth a visit.
  • Really wonderful small museum with many opportunities of engagement. Love the cafe space outside of the gallery. Beautiful outdoor grounds as well.
  • It worth to visit if you love arts. The good thing is no admission fees required.
  • Lovely eclectic collection of art. Staff are friendly and museum is accessible.

Where to stay in Chicago

The Midwest's major center for business conventions, Chicago boasts many affordable places to stay, with most hotels located around the airport and the city's central business district. To discover the city from a comfortable base within walking distance of most tourist attractions, aim for one of the big chain hotels in the downtown area. If you're traveling on a limited budget and wish to get a deeper sense of Chicago's many diverse neighborhoods, consider staying away from the pricey city center and explore suburbs on a commuter train line for easy city access.
