The Art Institute of Chicago
I may have mentioned this before, but when I was 11, I got a Parker Brothers game called "Masterpiece" for Christmas. The goal of the game was to acquire paintings, which each player would bid on - and only after acquiring one would you find out how much it was worth. All of my family enjoyed playing it, and I still have it at home today.
What I didn't know then was that all of the paintings in the game were from the Art Institute of Chicago. So when I visit the Institute (this was my second time), in a way it feels like time travel back to my childhood.
