Tips from locals
Leaning on the provocative contemporary art and culture, MCA features new exhibitions every month ranging from all sort of different arts from around the world.
My favorite art museum in Chicago. Great contemporary shows. Cute little cafe in the ground floor. Free music on the garden on Tuesdays. Free admission with an Illinois zip code on Tuesdays.
Chicago's Modern Art showcase. Always has great new shows and there's an amazing restaurant called Marisol there too.
I never visited this museum until I lived here, but it is a gem. Great size. Do-able in an afternoon. Free on Tuesdays with outdoor concerts in the summer.
