Okay, my bad. A Chicago TV station reports that someone else named the Art Institute of Chicago the best museum in the world.

That article also said that American Girl is one of the best restrooms in America...big grin smiley

It's based on the reviews and ratings of thousands of Trip Advisor participants. There's a list of 25 museums. It's been reported on all sorts of sites including national sites, not just that one Chicago station. Agree or disagree but at least try to find out what you are complaining about before you complain, now you look twice as silly.

Indeed. But you know, Chicago is home to those Obama people so clearly any museum there is suspect! No need to read the damn article.

I have seen all of those in Europe and US but am surprised at omissions from New York, Galleria Uffici, Kunsthistoriche in Vienna, Alte Pinakotheken in Munich,,, etc. All of those should be ahead of at least Galleria del Academia.

There's something a little off about the site-- some play I've never heard of comes up number 2 in "top attractions to see in Chicago."
I suspect there was some sort of blitz to boost that play's ratings that resulted in some bleed-over into ratings for other Chicago features.

Not worth trying to analyze the rankings because they are the result of an algorithm, not of any sort of intellectual or critical thinking. I agree that the play was probably there because of a concerted effort to get out the vote, so to speak.

PS: my last post was not meant to denigrate the Art Institute of Chicago. I love that museum!
