There was a long check in line at the museum that would have taken at least half an hour to stand in. So I used Tiquets and walked right in. Excellent service

I've been to the Art Institute several times. I question how some of the exhibits are organized, especially the non-European ones which don'r really seem to be as cohesive thematically. There seems to be more focus on who donated or loaned pieces to the museum then on the artwork themselves.

The system worked perfectly.

On two different days I purchased an Art Institute of Chicago admission ticket through Tiqets, on-the-spot in the foyer to avoid the long line-up to purchase. The entry barcode is emailed in seconds, in you go.
