Art Institute of Chicago Named Among Best Museums in the World — Again

Last year, the Art Institute was named the best museum in the world by TripAdvisor

The Art Institute of Chicago has earned another top spot in an international ranking of best museums.

The travel website TripAdvisor released its Travelers' Choice award for best museums in the world on Tuesday, and the Art Institute raked in the No. 3 spot behind the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and Musee d'Orsay in Paris.

The list was determined using an algorithm that took into account the quantity and quality of reviews for museums around the world over the last 12 months.

Although No. 3 isn't too shabby, the Art Institute dropped down a few notches from its spot in last year's ranking, when it came in at No. 1.

1. The Metropolitan Museum of Art: New York City
