Every year, the Art Institute of Chicago offers free days when the public can visit without paying the general admission price. Special exhibits, some tours, and other special features may not be free and might require a separate charge. Considering that the current daily admission price for an adult is $18, the Art Institute's free days are a great way to save money.
