Changes in Museum Hours and Suggested Admission Fees
As of July 1, 2004, the Art Institutes long day will move from Tuesday to Thursday, with Tuesday remaining our free day. Tuesday museum hours will now be 10:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. (and will continue to be free, thanks to Ford Motor Companys generous support), and Thursday hours will be 10:30 a.m.-8:00 p.m. Tuesday evening has been our late night-coupled with our free admission day-since the late 1980s. For many years before that, it was Thursday. On Thursday evenings, we will follow our normal suggested admission policy as an extension of the daytime hours. The last Tuesday evening will be June 29, and the first Thursday evening on July 1. The Art Institute is one of two major museums in Chicago
