The main attraction of the Field museum is the dinosaur Sue. The museum is old style, but is interesting.

So much to see. I liked all the animals that were stuffed and looking at the spiders & bugs. At the food venue, I got the pulled pork sandwich for $8 which was a bit dry but tasted good after hours of walking the museum.

Fantastic collections from all around the world. Great Egyptian display of mummies, mummified birds and artifacts. Fantastic diorama by Jeff Wrona showing the procedure of embalming the bodies. Hall of Gems is definitely worth a visit with some amazing gems and jewelery on display made...More

This is the best of the Chicago museums, in our opinion! Loved our day there!! Buy the all inclusive pass. It makes visiting the museum much easier and isn't much of a price increase.

We do love this place, the giant T-Rex, the underground exhibit, the Egyptian pyramid, the lions of Tsavo (watch the ghost in the Darkness before you go), BUT . . . We travel a lot, we love museums, and the Field is very old school....More

Didn't spend much time here, initially went for the TerraCotta Soldier exhibit, which was certainly interesting, but lacked depth, with All due respect, if simply based on comparative size. Senior prices are up around 26$, we thought we paid for everything to see in the...More

Probably by paying full fare ticket, instead of the explorer pass, we could have enjoyed more here. However, only basic pass included with city Explorer pass, so we probably missed most of them. Museum was also confusing and locating even the free exhibit (included with...More

You could spend days here and still not see it all. The evolution of life on earth exhibit that includes several dinosaur skeletons is impressive. Something for everyone with a mix of natural history and archeolgy.

I loved Sue and the terracotta warrior exhibit was amazing. I did not like all the stuffed animals and it smelled weird in that part of the museum. I understand that they got the animals in a different time period but it was kinda sad...More

I finally got to see the terracotta warriors from China at the Field Museum. Great experience! Stop into the bar of the first floor for a glass of wine - they have a nice selection.

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
