We were really looking forward to going to this museum and had high expectations, especially since it costs more than some of the other places we went in Chicago. There is a lot to see and some of it is really great, but a lot...More

My 7 and 10 year old girls loved everything. My husband and I were a little underwhelmed. Felt a lot of the museum needed some updating. Can easily get through in 2 hours.

We had to wait in line 25-30 minutes and it was very crowded. But once inside the actual museum, we had an awesome experience. The museum is huge! The exhibits are interesting. I appreciate the military discount too!

I love museums but this one is not that interesting. We did not pay extra for any of the additional exhibits. I couldn't believe the old school dioramas they had. The dinosaurs were cool, but it was not worth the $22 entry price.

The Field Museum consists of both natural history and cultural history. Some excellent permanent exhibits include the Mummies, the stuffed animals, and the Native American exhibit.

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
