My favorite of all the art museums in the US. There's the Musee D'Orsay in Paris. There's the Tate in London. Some argue the MET in New York... but I love this one with all my heart.
A very well organized museum, and unfettered access for even non-members so long as you ask. I don't know why, but it's always been easier to get special requests accommodated here than at other spots.
Man I love this place!
Oh, the exhibit with all the miniature interiors is pretty cool and always a favorite for those I take here who aren't big art buffs.
I always reserve tickets ahead of time for special exhibitions, which is a good idea at any large museum, and have never had a problem. If something is sold out, try a concierge service, as this is Chicago and nothing is impossible.

Beautiful building and open spaces all around it. Shady trees, babbling fountains, and benches for lunch or a afternoon coffee. Check out the gift shop for some good presents for those back home.

What a great art museum. I saw an incredibly well curated exhibition of etchings by Rembrandt. They have a host of famous pieces, such as American Gothic (those grumpy farmers who have been turned into all manner of advertising) and a remarkable Chagall.

Art Institute of Chicago is a must-visit Chicago destination for the sheer variety of art and the size of the museum space.
It's conveniently located next to Millenium Park and features anything ranging from art deco furniture to greek sculptures to portrait photography to impressionist paintings to everything in between and beyond.
Although I'm not a huge art fan, I still immensely enjoyed spending the 3 hours checking out all the installations.

I was lucky enough to see Roy Liechtenstein at the AIoC in June 2012. It's a beautiful, thorough, well organized museum with a great collection. I was happy to see icons of American art. Another plus is how close it is to Millenium Park -- wear comfortable shoes and prepare to walk all day. Spend half a day at each.
