This place is great. Visited with my wife and spent 4 hours here wandering around. Being from the UK I'm not a big fan of paying to get into museums, (they're free here), but this institution was worth it with high quality and accessible exhibits...More

My sister and I went to The Field Museum before heading back home. We thought we would have a decent amount of time with 3.5 hours, but we were wrong. We had so much fun, and there is so much more to see, that we...More

3-D movies, DNA lab, and ancient China exhibit were fascinating. A great place to learn about the origins of civilizations. The building is beautiful too. You can't miss seeing Lucy, the giant T-Rex skeleton.

Spread over 3 floors (mostly 2 actually) a very wide and varied experience. A massive section/s of stuffed animals with their history of American habitat. They also have many different collections from Greek, Roman and Egyptian themes and also American history through the ages.

Of all the things I did in Chicago, I think this is the crown jewel of my trip. There is so much to do, see, read, and experience in the Field Museum, that it can easily take you all day. You might not finish it...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

I watched the Story of Sue (T-Rex)- computer generated, great information- it does show T-Rex stalking and killing prey. Really depends on your kids and what they will watch without having nightmares.

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
