Free admission to the Art Institute of Chicago is available to Illinois educators, including: pre-K–12 teachers, teaching artists working in schools, pre-service teachers, and home school parents.
To receive free admission, eligible educators must visit the Crown Educator Resource Center and sign up for the Educator Network. Members of the Network are eligible to receive an Educator Annual Pass upon presenting valid school ID, pay stub, or a letter (on letterhead) verifying employment in an Illinois school. Only one pass is given to an educator per year; replacement passes are not available. Educator passes must be presented at the admissions desk upon each visit to the museum to obtain a ticket for entry into the galleries.
The Crown Resource Center is located in the Ryan Education Center, accessible from the museum's Modern Wing entrance. Educators who plan to come to the museum outside of the normal Crown Resource Center hours are asked to schedule an appointment to sign up for the Educator Network (except Sundays).
