Art Institute requests $2 fee increase

The Art Institute of Chicago has been named the top museum in the country and in the world by TripAdvisor.

Fees may be going up to visit Chicago's Art Institute as the museum has asked the Chicago Park District to approve a $2 increase for all visitors.

That would raise the fee for people who live in Chicago to $20.

People who live in Illinois but outside Chicago would pay $22 to enter. The fee for out-of-state visitors would increase to $25.

The Art Institute says it needs additional revenue to cover wage increases and other costs.
