Loved visiting The Art Institute of Chicago. The highlight was visiting The Thorne Miniature Rooms. I've never seen anything quite like it before. The restaurant there is very modern and lovely -- perfect for a glass of champagne and a decadent dessert.

Very nice park with lots to do. Very large and you have to see the famous bean. In the summer there are free concerts in the park.

No visit to Chicago is complete without a visit to this museum. The Art Institute is made up of many different buildings filled with a wide range of art works from different eras all around the world. Miró, Dalí, Picasso, Giacometti, Magritte, Lautrec, Gauguin, Cézanne, Renoir, Pissaro, Monet, Manet, Turner.... It is truly amazing.
Unfortunately we had only 3 hours to spend here which proven to be practically nothing... I wish we could have spent at least a day here....
Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Thank you!
Highly recommended!
