    It would be a pity not to go to the Museum of the Chicago Academy of Art in Chicago. The Art Institute of Chicago is located in downtown Chicago, on Michigan Avenue, across the street from the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. To the north of the museum is Millennium Park, with footbridges, and to the south are Grant Park and Buckingham Fountain. The Art Institute of Chicago Museum of Art, the old building facing the street is a Victorian style building, simple and elegant, with two bronze lions in front of the door, powerful and vigorous. Whenever the Chicago Hockey Team (Chicago Black Hawk) and the Rugby Team (Chicago Bear) reach the final, the Bronze Lion is put on his jersey. Don't be surprised to see the copper lions on both sides of the museum door dressed. The new building is a modern style building. The new building is connected with the old one. The new building has a side door leading to Millennium Park. The Art Institute of Chicago Museum of Art has hundreds of galleries, galleries and galleries. The collection of exhibits is extremely rich. It mainly collects works of art from Europe and the United States. It also collects works of art from China, India, Japan, South Korea, Africa and Latin America. The collection of Asian museums is rich and contains many precious works. Exhibits include paintings, sculptures, photography, textile works of art, architecture, interior furniture, etc. Paintings and sculptures are the main works. They are famous for collecting a large number of works of Impressionist and post-Impressionist masters as well as American works of art. Renoir, Monet, Van Gogh, Picasso and many other masterpieces are displayed to the public in this artistic palace. There are also modern works of art, and once there was a display of modern behavioral art. Note: Flash lights are not allowed to be used for photography, and answering and dialing mobile phones must be in the corridor without exhibits. Because the photos left by netizens are mostly masterpieces of Western masters, I put some pictures of exhibits related to China. Most of the photos uploaded by netizens are from the front door. I upload a side door. Then upload a picture of the queue at the main entrance. The queue is long and crowded, but it's faster (about 20 minutes). The Art Institute of Chicago Museum of Art costs $25 for adults (September 2016), $19 for students and elderly people over 65, and free for children under 12. There are often free visits (specific free time is posted on the official website of the Chicago Academy of Art Museum, often on Thursday). Because the Art Institute of Chicago is located in the busiest part of the city, transportation is very convenient. Take the Brown Line, Green Line, Orange Line, Pink Line and Purple Line to Adams/Wabash Station and walk eastward for a street. Take the subway red line and get off at Monroe Station. Walk eastward for two blocks. There's a parking lot just below Michigan Avenue near the museum. Of course, parking fees are high.

    Art Institute of Chicago is well worth coming to showcase world-famous collections to tourists around the world and immerse them in the art world. Many of the exhibits are world-class, such as George Seurat's Sunday afternoon on Big Bowl Island, Grant Wood, American Gothic, El Greco's Ascension to Heaven, and so on. The Chicago Academy of Art (Museum) ranked NO.1 as the best Museum in the world on a network list, which can be said to be a must for visiting Chicago. It is suggested to arrange at least 23 hours of tour time here, because there are too many exhibits to see. It is recommended that the free application "Art Institute Tours" be downloaded from Art Institute's WiFi network for Apple and Android devices. App offers many routes to visit museums, including step-by-step navigation. It is easy to use and more purposeful to visit.

    One of the most cost-effective indoor museums in Chicago is the Art Museum if you only have enough time to visit one museum in Chicago. American lecturers are very enthusiastic when they go to show and ask for directions. A black female commentator strongly recommended that her favorite painting was Picasso's old guitarist in the blue period, and also explained the story of Picasso's painting. Of course, if you're an impressionist fan, you should check out Monet's Haystack Series. Seven of the 15 haystacks in the world are hidden in this museum. Three hours of planned visits to the exhibition would be enough for your eyes. I prefer the exquisite Chicago Museum of Art to the Metropolitan Museum of New York. In addition, students recommend to buy tickets in the library with their student ID card, which will be more economical than booking tickets online.

    The Chicago Museum of Art is one of the most worthwhile places to visit Chicago. The museum is located south of Michigan Avenue, not far from Yunmen, Millennium Park. The Museum has a very rich collection of world-class treasures, such as Van Gogh, Monet and Renoir paintings. The museum also has a large collection of ancient Chinese ceramics, metals and paintings, which are very precious. The museum is very large and the admission fee is $25. It's worth spending a whole day here. In order to deepen the understanding of exhibits, it is suggested to rent a guide commentator. Although there are fewer Chinese commentaries, there are still some important contents.

    The Chicago Museum of Art, one of the top ten museums with the largest number of Chinese cultural relics overseas, has a rich collection of porcelain. Like Glaude Monet, Renoir, Van Gogh are in ah, every time I come to leave. Every time I come to the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art, there are amazing collections, not to mention touring exhibitions, which are the best masters.

    The style and richness of a city can be judged by her gallery, making a quick crossing in the second floor exhibition area, Monet, Van Gogh, Renoir, Pizarro. Traveling among the works of many Impressionist masters, you often see the true paintings of "seemingly acquainted" and in a moment, you will know why this windy city exists. It is worth visiting and strongly recommended.

    The Chicago Museum of Art has fewer people than the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Impressionist works come in on the first floor. Many of the works recommended by the history of art and the history of Western art are presented one by one, from Van Gogh Monet Manirenoa to Degas... Many contemporary works are also very

    It's really the most admired place in Chicago! One can spend a whole day browsing, including exhibits from Europe, ancient Egypt, Tang bronze, to modern American art, such as Sheratt, Van Gogh, Monet... It's so cool! I went when the Cubs won the championship. The lion wears a C hat at the door. It's very unique. Don't forget that the front door is the starting point of Highway 66 on Mother's Road in America. So many reasons for having to come! Be sure to come!

    With a BOA card, you can visit the Chicago Museum of Art for free on the first weekend of each month. It's the first time I've been to Liangge for N times. Although not as large as the British Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the works of Van Gogh Monet Picasso are worth seeing as treasures of the town hall.
