I’ve been many times to the Art Institute of Chicago, but I was looking forward to this tour. My friend and I were not disappointed! We were fortunate enough to get Colin as our guide— he was charming! SO much fun — he made the...More
I have been wanting to try a Museum Hack tour for a couple years now, and finally had a chance to do one yesterday. Our tour guide, Colin, was beyond delightful. We laughed so much and had the very best time. I could not imagine...More
We had an amazing tour by Colin. He was funny and very interactive. No museum fatigue here! We learned about various types of artworks that spanned over 5000 years. I highly recommend this tour for anyone over 14. Can’t wait to do another tour in...More
The art museum is a HUGE place. The point of this tour is to get you into every room, looking at and thinking about a selection of pieces. As our guide put it, it would take months for you to see every single piece of...More

What a fantastic tour! Growing up around Chicago, I've been on many Art Institute tours over the years. This one was, hands-down, my favorite. Such a fun, fiesty, and and unique perspective and a rare glimpse into rooms and collections that I'd never before explored....More

Our tour guide, Colin, was phenomenal! He was so energetic and fun and made the museum come to life. The Museum Hack tours are awesome and would highly recommend. Be prepared to walk around and be engaged.

Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of
the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
