The inside story

Founded in 1866 as a free art school and gallery, the Art Institute of Chicago is now among the most visited museums in the USA and worldwide. It is currently located in the Historic Boulevard District of Chicago and features a collection of more than 300000 works of art including Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art, American art, Old Masters, industrial and graphic design, and more. The permanent collection of the museum includes, among its treasures, more than 30 paintings by Claude Monet, masterpieces by Renoir, Toulouse-Lautrec, Matisse and Vincent van Gogh. Among the most important works of the American collection are American Gothic by Grant Wood and Edward Hopper's Nighthawks.

In addition to paintings, the Art Institute houses other valuable exhibits. For example, in the Thorne Miniature Rooms the museum ticket holders can admire 1:12 scale interiors showcasing American, European and Asian architectural styles from the Middle Ages to the 1930s. In the Touch Gallery, specially designed for the visually impaired, the museum guests can experience several works though the sense of touch instead of through sight. Artefacts lovers will appreciate the opportunity to admire the Ancient Egyptian, Greek and Roman galleries, which hold the mummy case of Paankhenamum and other interesting objects.
