I loved this Museum. I could have spent a week there. There was so much I wanted to see but didn't have enough time. Some highlights for me were the two lions from the Ghost and the Darkness movie and Sue the T-Rex. I really...More

Spent a Saturday viewing a visiting exhibit of Greek, Roman and Etruscan art. A bit of a disappointment as there were limited pieces on display. There was a Jurassic Park exhibit which was very well done and very interactive. Bring your jackets as it was...More

Little Susy, Cooper, and Zack hated our visit. The heat alone (in October!) was unbearable, at times I felt as if I would faint. My children were not interested in any of the topics they had, nor was I. My husband, Scott, was the only...More

I went with my wife and infant daughter. We loved all of the exhibits we could get into. There were several you have to pay extra for once you were in. If you have multiple children it could get quite pricy. The collection of items...More

This museum has a lot to see. Unfortunately you have to pay extra to view some great exhibits. This is a perfect place for children and adults. I’m happy that IL educators get a free general admission ticket.

It is a very interesting and complete museum. A lot to see for just one day. I recommend that you take your time and probably make it in two days.

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
