We went to the field museum on a reciprocal membership from our local science museum.It was nice , the gemstone room was interesting. Though compared to museums in NYC, it paled in comparison.

The Field Museum has a current exhibit (through Jan. 2019 I think) on the terracotta warriors found in China. Wonderful exhibit! And their other on-going exhibits are worthwhile too. There are activities for kids, and there are always tours. Spend anywhere from a couple of...More

We were impressed- ranked right up there with other Natural History Museums, but the Terra Cotta Warrior exhibit was a highlight.

Wow. This museum was built 100 yrs ago and it is beautiful. The sheer number of historically significant artifacts they have is mind blowing. They have an Ancient Egypt exhibit that no one would ever be allowed to have today. As you enter, there are...More

The Field museum is great. A fantastic old building, filled with plenty of exhibits that pull you in and contain the appropriate amount and interesting enough info. It looked like they were working on some new stuff, perhaps meteorite related? That should be cool to...More

The Terra Cotta Warriors exhibit was amazing. To see a sample of the actual Warriors from 210 BC was just incredible. Definitely a must see if you have a chance.

The Field museum has everything from Dinosaurs to world history. I loved the China exhibit especially. Also I have been in the animal exhibit many times and you can always find something new

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
