I visited the museum last Friday with family and was amazed with the beauty of the Calatrava. The view of the lake was truly stunning, the art collections inspiring, and the little wine bar was a good reprieve. We had excellent service from Christie and Carmella. I was so impressed with the experience, I became a member!

We went for the community reopening day. We ended up signing up for a yearly family membership. Happy to see the janitor again.

So amazing - one of my favorite museums I've ever visited. Beautiful building, beautiful locations, and of course beautiful art. Highlights for me were Warhol, the infinity room, and O'Keefe. Admission fee absolutely worth it, food in the cafes is also fairly priced and good. Museum shop also very nice. Staff are very friendly. The layout is a tiny bit... More

This building won the award for the best piece of architecture in America when it was first built. Go visit any time and enjoy some tea while you look out over Lake Michigan. To me it is like being inside a whale.

This place is so great that we were members for several years, even though we live six hours away. Their own collection is vast and interesting. They have done a good deal of remodeling to make more of it accessible. Best to us has been the wide variety of special or traveling exhibitions. A very special place.

I travel to dozens of cities in a year and always make a point of visiting art museums. Most are let down by the quality of their collection, some buildings are boring or not good for displaying art, and the biggest sin is putting up a random collection of middling works with famous names. While I still think Crystal Bridges... More
