Art Institute of Chicago

My trip so far has covered quite a fair bit of art museum around the major cities. One of the most famous Art museum in the world is the Art Institute of Chicago. I have read a numerous of good review on this museum and I have set the standard to compared it against Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. In my opinion, this museum is the greatest as it combine both old and modern art under one roof. The interior were well structured as well and the arts were arranged properly according to the theme with proper description. The lightning is good as well. The art museum is huge and be prepared to spend at least half day here.

The Art Institute has one of the world's most notable collections of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art in its permanent collection. Besides that, in 2009, the museum opened the Modern Wing which includes several works from Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse.
