Even if you are not a big fan of art, the Art Institute is a great pass-time place to go to especially when the weather isn’t great. I usually choose to go on rainy days or when there are new exhibits. It also has a great variation of art from different time periods, contemporary, modern, photography and even more. If you want to explore all the wings of the museums I recommend you put off a minimum of 2 hours of your day.
There’s currently a temporary exhibit (closing in a few days) named “My Room is Another Fish Bowl” Philippe Parreno. This exhibit is just a room filled with helium fish balloons that visitors can interact with. You can see from the picture, that the kids really enjoyed this exhibit.
One of my favorite permanent installations are the Chagall windows. I love these windows because first of all, they remind me of Ferris Bueller’s Day off and also because there are benches right in front of the piece where you can sit and really see the detail that went into the stained glass. I always notice new details every time I see this piece.
