Closed for reinstallation

The Smart Museum of Art is temporarily closed as we prepare for our next exhibition, Toward Common Cause: Art, Social Change, and the MacArthur Fellows Program at 40. Please check back in the near future for our updated hours and other information about visiting this summer. 

Always Free

Thanks to the support of our SmartPartners, admission to the Smart Museum of Art is always free and open to all.


The Smart Museum of Art is located on the north edge of the University of Chicago’s campus in the lovely and historic Hyde Park. We are located 7.5 miles south of the Loop, and easily accessible by car or by public transit. When planning your visit, be sure to check out all the great art and culture that our community has to offer.
