On Wednesday both the Museum of Science & Industry and the Art Institute of Chicago were given approval to increase their rates, although Chicago residents are still getting a break.
Fortunately for Illinois residents there are plenty of free days. The Museum of Science & Industry is free on weekdays through January, and the Art Institute through February 13.
