Download the award-winning—and now newly updated—Art Institute of Chicago Official Mobile app.
The Art Institute has thousands of artworks on view—each with its own story to tell. Our app is your personal guide to the collection, introducing you to a world of art, culture, and creativity along the way.
There’s bound to be a tour that suits your interests. Whether it’s architecture or Impressionism, modern art or miniatures, the audio tours cover a range of subjects and are rich with behind-the-scenes anecdotes, unique and varied voices, and music that weaves a narrative thread. Plus, a location-aware map helps you orient yourself in the galleries and see which artworks are nearby. Members can even access a digital version of their member card so they can enjoy all their on-site benefits.
In the first app of its kind, the Art Institute of Chicago Member Card app makes it possible for members to carry their member cards on their iPhones rather than in their wallets or purses. Members need only to enter their member number once to download the card and then enjoy all the benefits the museum has to offer—from special exhibition viewing hours to exclusive programs and entry into the Member Lounge. The member card features a selection of images—choose between iconic permanent collection works and featured special exhibition pieces—from the permanent collection and a barcode that can be scanned at entrances to the museum and special exhibitions.
This app is available for Android and included in the Official Mobile App for Apple devices.
