My husband and I visited the Field Museum on our anniversary and while it was totally worthwhile, we only purchased the basic admission tickets (and it was clearly not enough). There were several exhibits that looked really interesting and also costs extra. The more catalogue-y...More

If you haven't seen Sue (the dinosaur), this is the first thing you will see. Most of the exhibits are permanent (covering asian and african culture) and you could spend half a day here

The Field Museum is a spectacular place and definitely an excellent museum, hence my 5-star rating. However, do not waste your time and money on the special exhibit "Jurassic Park". At $15 additional dollars for a daytime admission and a whopping $25 for an evening...More

We had a wonderful visit to the Field Museum. My husband was really excited for the Jurassic World exhibition. We went on a weekday afternoon around lunchtime, it wasn't too busy and the people were mostly spread out so it didn't seem too crowded. The...More

First of all, the historic facility with its great hall is incredible and has been well maintained. Our family really liked the Ancient Americas exhibit and we especially liked the Evolving Planet exhibit. The 3D Galapagos Islands movie was excellent.

The Field Museum is a great way to spend a few hours "killing time" and learning something at the same time. The IMAX movies are both entertaining and informative and give a good background for the special exhibits. Don't overload and try to see the...More

Visited this museum today. There's so much to see and do. Go on a Sunday, not many people. Ate at the Field Bistro. Prices were steep and not a very good selection.

We went for the dinosaurs and the Egyptian exhibits. Both were smaller than I expected but still really cool. The New York natural history museum has bigger dinosaurs. The best part was the temporary exhibit Jurassic world. We probably could have stayed there for longer...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
