The Art Institute of Chicago sits on Michigan Avenue, and the building is noticeable from far away because of the two large marble lions sitting on the stairs. The Institute is home to many great works of art, sculptures, and artifacts. Admission is free on certain days, but a donation is certainly welcome. I'm not an art person, so I couldn't tell you too much about the works in the institute. There are many galleries, each one holding art from a certain artist or period in time. The basement floor was very interesting because it held artifacts from the middle ages, and items from all around the world. This is definitely a place to visit, even if you're not into art.
