museum and its thousands of works. The custom tours offer
information on more than 300 works of art, 50 different ways to
organize a visit to the museum according to a visitor's interests,
and turn-by-turn navigation.
The app, "Art
Institute of Chicago Tours," available for Apple and Android
devices through the museum's free Wi-Fi, not only provides
information on the art, but also where to find restrooms and
