What an amazing place. A vast collection of exhibits, displays, filmed presentations and information. I’ll admit I went to see the life size animated dinosaurs of the “Jurassic” exhibition but wound up spending most of the day wandering around, taking in as much as I...More

We made a quick run through this museum. We mostly wanted to see Sue, the most intact t-rex ever found, and she did not disappoint. Go visit her!

We visited The Field Museum on our last day in Chicago. We visited the Jurassic World exhibit first. This is one of the best exhibits that I have ever seen. Top notch. We spend the next several hours exploring the rest of the museum. From...More

Like many others, I have visited the Field Museum for years and years. I've been there with family, friends, and on school trips both as a child, and as a parent. Just stepping in the doors make me feel nostalgic. I love spending all day...More

Museum and nice. Exhibits are rotated from the basement. Things are always changing. It is expensive but worth a visit. Buy your tickets online or on your phone and pick up at will call. Do this and you can avoid waiting hours in line.

The Field Museum surpassed any expectations that I had. We originally came here because my husband wanted to see The Lions of Tsavo and I wanted to see the African Elephants. There are so many beautiful exhibits and I regret that we didn’t get to...More

We just managed about 20 % of this great museum in a day. The exhibitions on Ancient America + Artic inuit (not "eskimos") and West Coast Indians are outstanding even though parts are quite old. We learned a lot - especially about the many high...More

This place is great for kids. It was very kid friendly and had a lot of interactive activities. Even thou we weren't traveling with kids, we still thought this museum was cool.

We enjoyed our time at the museum. One of my kids is a history buff so it was right up her alley. We did the Jurassic Park exhibit- I would pass on that- very overrated in our opinion. The museum is probably a must-do, but...More

South Loop
This downtown neighborhood offers a variety of
activities ranging from cultural to sporting. If you
happen to visit during football season, you may bump
into a boisterous few fans on their way to a Bears
game on the southernmost tip of South Loop. On the
flip side, Museum Campus offers cultural and
educational experiences in its planetarium, museum and
aquarium, all situated along the lakefront. Grant Park

All these answers are very accurate. If you like to thoroughly take in everything, you'd be lucky to get through it in a day. If this is you, pick the areas of highest interest and focus on those. If you like to just spend... More
