The Art Institute of Chicago Questions & Answers

Are general admission tickets valid for the entire day of purchase? In other words, could I enter in the morning, exit the museum to eat lunch elsewhere, and re-enter with my ticket during the afternoon without having to pay for admission again?

Yes, you can leave and then come back in on the same day. Just be sure to keep your ticket as you will need to show it in order to re-enter without having to pay again.

I don't know for sure so you should ask. No one stamped my hand or gave me a sticker or button to wear but I suppose the printed ticket could be proof of purchase. If you do this, try opting for a Thursday when they are open until 8pm.

There is a nice little restaurant in the museum where you can get a nice sandwich and a drink if you change your mind and don't want to leave.
