Mayor's Press Office

"TripAdvisor's ranking reinforces what both residents and visitors to Chicago have said time and again -- that our cultural institutions and the Art Institute of Chicago especially, are the best in the world. From its famous facade to its more than 300,000 pieces of art, the Art Institute of Chicago showcases the best of what Chicago has to offer - iconic architecture, proximity to the lakefront and a collection that is diverse as it is accessible. It is thanks to Chicago's museums, theaters and dance companies that we have become one of the world's cultural capitals."
