EXPLORE CHICAGO MUSEUMS & THE ARTS

It’s like searching Wikipedia … only much, much cooler.

From Titanosaurs to Titians, a visit to Chicago is a lesson in culture, history and science.

Wander the galleries of the world-renowned Art Institute of Chicago, housing one of the largest collections of late-19th-century French art in the world. Be blown away by tornados and U-boats at the Museum of Science & Industry, the largest science museum in the Western Hemisphere. Marvel at skulking dinosaurs at the Field Museum of Natural History. And view the work of leading contemporary artists from around the world at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago.

Come visit and find your inspiration.
