they rotate in different artists and exhibits, almost all of the installations are more then worth the visit. If you live nearby, rotate the Art Museum (and others) in Elmhurst, into your routine. It's worth the 1-2 hours you will spend.

This is a very meager use of the words `art museum.' The unique McCormick house is what keeps this review from a one.

The museum changes every couple of months so it is worth return trips, although some of the exhibits are misses. Don't pass up the local artist gallery though! Exciting and challenging work can be seen there year-round.

The Elmhurst Art Museum is relatively small but always has really interesting exhibits. There is an original Mies van der Rohe home attached to the museum which is a fantastic look back into Mid Centruy Modern Architecture. Always worth a visit.

There is an interesting architectural story about the building. The current pinball machine exhibit is fun and it brings out the young people which is great. My impression is that there is alot of young art, which is refreshing. Don't miss the cube.
