The Art Institute of Chicago has thousands of works of art on view—each with its own stories to tell. This app will be your personal guide to the collection—and its stories—introducing you to a world of culture, creativity, and artists 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

Hop on or off a tour at any time—and listen wherever you are, not just at the museum. A fresh and engaging experience of art awaits.

Makes your visit twice as fun


This app is very well designed and really made a difference for me when I went to visit! The maps work very well and the stories you can listen to are fantastic.

Great tours


It's like a podcast scavenger hunt. It allows you to pick a specific type of tour and then chase after the art pieces. The audio clips are short 2-3 minutes and provide great info additional from the painting info.

Good start but...


Needs to have Apple Wallet integration for the member card, so that it shows on lock screen when at the Institute. Don’t need to go hunting for the app amongst the dozens on my phone.

Also needs to have access to all audio tours. Integrate payments for special exhibit audio tours using Apple Pay, but should be able to use on the phone.
