Didn't have to wait in the ginoromous line like everyone else, and that blew my mind! Literally had tickets in a minute, and could scan it and walk on in. 100/10

This is an amazing experience and a beautifully laid out venue. I wish I was in Chicago longer so I could visit for several days — there’s really that much to take in.

Standing in the rain, in line, on a freezing cold Chicago winter day is not my idea of a fun time! Luckily, a man said get your tickets online and go right in. We did ... and within minutes we bypassed the line and were enjoying the wonderful Art Institute of Chicago. Couldn't have been easier.
