Typical Art Museum
By Sunshine Verified Reviewer from Des Moines, Iowa on
Pros:
Mini Rooms, Lots of Art, NO LINE
Cons:
Endless Security,
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Art Institute of Chicago:

The card made this attraction simple once you made it through the security check at the front entrance. We simply went to the ticket desk and switched for different tickets. Overall we thought this art museum was pretty typical of any other large scale art museum one would go to. Some of the large statues were unique and cool to take pictures of. We also enjoyed the mini rooms. The museum is flooded with people, inside and out. Overall it might have been a better experience if we had taken more time to see the entire museum.
