AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Even if you’re not an art buff, you’ll surely recognize many of the works here. The Art Institute’s 260,000-item collection includes icons, such as Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks, Grant Wood’s American Gothic, Georges Seurat's A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, and more Monets than you can shake a stick at. The collection is particularly strong in Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and American works. A Modern wing was added in 2009, making the museum the second-largest in the United States. After you hit the highlights, be sure to check out the Thorne Miniatures, a suite of charming, elaborately wrought dollhouse-sized rooms.
