Art Institute of Chicago

FROM THE Arts and Enrichment

The Art Institute of Chicago is one of the oldest and largest art museums in the United States. A great place for families to begin their visit is the Ryan Education Center on the first floor of the Modern Wing entrance (159 E. Monroe St.) Admission to this part of the museum is always free. The Family Room in the education center includes hands-on activities kids can use to learn about art from building blocks to puzzles of the great masterpieces.
