You could spend the next four years getting to know this encyclopedic institution, which owns more than 300,000 artworks and artifacts from all over the world and every era from antiquity to the present. Our favorite pieces include the Japanese prints, fragments of local buildings by Frank Lloyd Wright and the Thorne Miniature Rooms. We’re also in love with Renzo Piano’s light-filled Modern Wing, which is the perfect place to enjoy the Art Institute’s architecture and design collection, modern and contemporary art, and gorgeous views of Millennium Park.

This is one of my favorite places to take visitors, and I might be doing so selfishly because I always want to go and see what's new. Right now they've got the Charles Ray exhibit up, and it is nothing short of inspiring. You could spend a day at the Art Institute and still not see everything.
