Put away your wallet - Art Institute offering free admission in January
In addition, admission to the museum will be free for Illinois residents on the first and second Wednesday of the month beginning in March, bringing the total number of free days for the year close to 50.
Sorry, Hoosiers and tourists. You still have to pay. Kids and members always get in free.
