The Art Institute of Chicago

After two full days absorbing as much as possible of the city’s stunning art deco architecture, it was now high time for some art. Enter the Art Institute of Chicago, one of the largest museums in the United States, one that is home to some of my favourite paintings and the one museum you should never leave Chicago without visiting.

And once inside, the danger is, you will never want to leave.

  1. By far one of my preferred museums. Home to one of my most beloved paintings – Paris Street Rainy Day by Gustave Caillbotte. I’ve only been to Chicago once and the Art Institue was my main motivation!

  2. The best motivation! We couldn’t wait to see the Art Institute and the only reason we waited for two days was that we had a no-rain break (for most of the time), so we thought it was our chance to check some of the architecture!
