Just in the heart of The Gold Coast. Free of charge. Very nice museum. Human scale: not too big. They have right now great Christmas gift shop and special collection with nativity scenes/crèche made all around the world.

The permanent collection has several rooms filled with European religious art and artifacts, from the medieval period into the eighteenth century. Some of the pieces are quite remarkable and most are at least interesting. A special exhibition of Christmas crèches opened recently and will end...More

This is a small museum of religious art, not exclusively Christian, at Loyola University, only a block off the Magnificent Mile. It's got a beautiful collection of art, and it's free to visit, which is always a plus.

I believe it's $9 for general admission and $6 for Seniors. It's a very sweet museum. I hope this helps.
