I recently visited my brother who purchased a condo at 1335 Prairie about three years ago. We're originally from Chicago but I moved to California 12 years ago. Before I moved to California I had worked at Carson's on State Street so I am pretty familiar with how the South Loop looked back then. Because I drove from Beverly I would sometimes get off the Ryan at 22nd street and cut through the south loop to one of the downtown parking garages. The south loop was a mess back then. It was an area that you would just want to drive through as fast as possible and get to your eventual destination. During my recent trip I could not believe what I was seeing regarding the improvements that have been made to south Michigan and south Indiana. In terms of the building itself. There was not much about it that I didn't like. I like (most) of the architecture of the south loop. I like the look of Tower Two. Inside, it was clean and well maintained. The pool was very nice as was the entertainment room that was available. My brother's condo faces east so we got to see the sunrise over the lake which I enjoyed very much (we get the sunset in California). The view is just beautiful and the parklike setting by the Field Museum is unlike anything else I have seen in Chicago. Just beautiful!!

this place is really unique and has some stuff you'll be floored by and some stuff you're gonna say... "so that's art, huh?" The variety is what makes it interesting, though, and they have everything from sculpture, paintings, films, photog. and other "installation" type "art". I took my 8 and 9 year olds and they advised us not to enter a particular exhibit. I appreciated the heads up! Cool place if you want to see some alternative art.
Beautiful museum and exhibits. We have taken the kids to the Christmas around the world, the traveling Walt Disney exhibit, Mirror Maze ( walk carefully ) Give yourself plenty of time as there is lots to see . We went as kids for field trip and enjoy going with our children .
One of the best art museums in the U.S., The Art Institute of Chicago is a national treasure, and a must visit destination for anyone traveling to Chicago. Some of the finest art in the world hangs here. Go. Take it in. Pay your respects.
One of the most beautiful museums in the nation. This summer I took the kids they loved it. Children are free with paid adult fare. If you are visiting Chicago this is a must visit stop. The staff are incredibly friendly highly recommend.
I was a bit disappointed with my trip to this museum. Sure, the dinosaurs are interesting, but many of the displays are getting old and tired. This museum needs a facelift.
Nice place to learn about the history of Chicago it was cool taking pictures above the city, and learning the history of the building a must to in Chicago
This is a tiny educational place to discover your Swedish Roots. Not too much here, but what is here is really sweet. A quick stop, not an all day affair.
Awesome impressive collection of artifacts. The maintenance is clean and neat. So much knowledge you can gain by the artifacts. Everyone must visit this.
Fans of weird/quirky museums should not miss this eye-opening museum which will leave you feeling incredibly grateful for advances in medical technology!
