About the Art Institute of Chicago

After the Great Fire of 1871, Chicago underwent what is now known as the “Great Rebuild.” This involved the development of a new architectural style and the building of several cultural institutions. The Art Institute of Chicago was one of those buildings. It was founded in 1879, eight years after the fire, but moved to its current location on Michigan Ave. and Adams Street in 1893. Two bronze lions, now patinated to a light green, mark the entrance of the Institute. These lions guard the 300 000 works of art on display inside. Take a guided tour, organize a field trip, or follow one of the museum’s self-conducted group tours. There are so many ways to enjoy this world-renowned art institution. Start planning your group trip to the Art Institute with Bus.com.

Why charter a bus to visit the Art Institute of Chicago

Whether you’re transporting a class of kids, a seniors group, or a bunch of art-enthusiasts, rent a bus in Chicago to get to the Art Institute. When you charter a Chicago bus rental, you automatically hire a vetted driver. That driver will drop you off at your location and pick you up when you’re finished, leaving you to wander the gallery in peace. We recommend renting a Chicago school bus for short trips or a coach bus for trips over two hours.

About the location and the surrounding area

The Art Institute of Chicago is situated in beautiful Grant Park, a 319-acre area of lush green spaces, public art, and performance venues, located on the coast of Lake Michigan. Surrounding the Institute are a series of gardens and fountains. The Buckingham Fountain to the south of the Institute is one of the largest fountains in the world and a centerpiece to the park. Use it as a meeting place after your group finishes exploring the ground. Besides the gardens, there are famous public art statues like Cloud Gate, open-air amphitheaters like the Petrillo Music Shell, and even skating rinks like the Maggie Daley Ice Skating Ribbon. Have your Chicago charter bus rental drop you off for a morning tour of the Institute then pick you up after a day in Grant Park.
