As a native Chicagoan, I've been going to the Field Museum annually for the last 25 years of my life. I absolutely love it. There are always the new exhibits going, while you can count on the older exhibit to continue being great. I love...More

Take one day to stop by at the Field. Beautiful museum, with tons of attractions. You won't regret the time there. Plus, they always have something special to share, an new and different exhibit, that will add more fun to your visit. Always great.

Enjoyed China's First Emperor and His Terracotta Warriors display. If you have a CityPass be warned that there are additional expenses to see special exhibits. There is also a 3D movie theater and a small cafe.

This is an experience, don't let the word museum scare you away. This is a must. The stuffed animal display is extremely extensive and well labeled. The enormous animal skeletons are incredible. Plan a day and go see so much. We had kids so we...More

Surely one of the best in the world. Too much to see for one afternoon, so we just saw the highlights. They have a multilevel pricing system so you can see some or all

This museum is outstanding. I loved my visit. My favorite was the terra-cotta warriors exhibition. It awesome to see "Sue" too. This museum has a lot to offer adults and children too. World class!

The Field Museum has beautiful exhibits in anthropology, mineralogy and science in general. Takes about 2-3 hours and the price is reasonable. Great place to visit in Chicago when the weather is not so favorable outside.

We visited this museum by accident and were totally amazed by the quality and quantity of exhibits...we spent 5 hours investigating and I am sure we didn't get to it all. Highly recommend!

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
