What travelers say:

Located on Chicago's most bustling Michigan Avenue, the Chicago Museum of Art is a magnificent building built in 1879 and one of the city's landmarks. It is located east of Millennium Park, with a 186-meter walk-bridge link. Walking over the bridge, visitors can enjoy the spectacular lake view and skyline of Chicago. The Chicago Museum of Art is the second largest art museum in the United States, after the Metropolitan Museum of New York. The museum has four floors and nearly 300 exhibition areas. The collection is rich in everything from ancient European weapons, Roman sculptures, ancient Egyptian treasures, to American contemporary decorative art and modern art. There are many masterpieces by Picasso, Monet and Van Gogh. The new exhibition hall, the wing of modernity, opened in 2009, is a powerful work of the architectural design of the American Art Museum, which includes works by such famous modern artists as Dali, Mondrian and Dushant. There are two famous paintings representing American culture in the last century 30-40 years: Gothic American and Night Eagle, the treasures of two Chicago Museum of Art.
