The Art Institute is an active lending institution that is additionally always trying to improve the experience of visitors. Periodically some galleries may be closed and works of art may be on loan to institutions around the globe. To ensure that your visit meets your expectations, please check the updates below.
The arms and armor galleries (236–237) are currently closed as we expand our display of the art of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, including the arms and armor collection. The new galleries will open in spring 2017.
