The Art Institute is changing its free admission days.

It is getting rid of its free Thursday evenings program for a new Wednesday schedule.

A museum spokesperson says they hope this new schedule will attract more local residents than tourists.

The free Thursday evenings end May 26. After that, the first and second Wednesdays of each month will be free all day, starting June 1.
