GPS your way through the Art Institute of Chicago

The Art Institute of Chicago has created a free “indoor GPS” app that presents 50 varied tours of all the public spaces in the 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 restaurants.

Tours designed specifically for families include directions to works of art, information on artists and videos on many works.
