Rising 1,000 feet (305 meters) above the city’s famed Magnificent Mile, 360 CHICAGO offers stunning vistas that encompass the city skyline, Lake Michigan, and Navy Pier. On clear days the observation deck’s astounding views extend beyond Chicago to three neighboring states: Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin.

At 360 CHICAGO, the guest experience begins at the ground floor with a museum-style exhibition celebrating Chicago’s history and highlighting nine of its culturally rich neighborhoods. Then zip up to the 17,000-square-foot (1,580 square meters) observation deck for breathtaking views.
Named one of Tripadvisor’s “Top U.S. Attractions of 2022,” the Art Institute of Chicago is home to a collection of art that spans 5,000 years of creativity. Visit to see the best Impressionist collection outside of Paris and some of the most iconic paintings in the world, including Grant Wood’s American Gothic, Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks, Georges Seurat’s A Sunday on La Grande Jatte—1884, and Vincent van Gogh’s Self-Portrait.
Don’t miss the Deering Family Galleries of Medieval and Renaissance Art, Arms, and Armor, presenting nearly 700 objects from the museum’s rich holdings of art, jewelry and arms and armor from 1200 to 1600; the African Art gallery whose geographic arrangement of the collection illustrates the vastness and cultural diversity of the African continent; the beautiful Mary and Michael Jaharis Galleries of Greek, Roman, and Byzantine Art; and the Renzo Piano-designed Modern Wing, which is home to the museum’s collection of 20th and 21st century art.
