We purchased CityPass and did the Field Museum and the Shedd Aquarium back to back (they're right next to each other). Because we did the aquarium first, we were a little worn out by the time we got to the Field Museum. We chose to...More

I went to see the man-eating lions of Tsavo but found out this museum is so much more amazing than I imagined. Second largest natural history museum in the world (behind the Smithsonian) is a must-see!

A Chicago Icon, wave to Sue the T-Rex and then go spend a couple of hours going thru the excellent treatment of evolution. Improve your experience by reading one of Richard Fortey's books on evolution first...the items in the collection will then seem familiar.

At Museum campus, the 146 bus can easily get there. Since we are members of our local science museum, we get recipriocating benefits to this museum also. Spent 3-4 hours there. Lots of interesting exhibits. The cafeteria was basic and reasonably price in the basement.

The museum has nice exhibits like the terracotta warriors, the tattoo exhibit and lots more. They have discounts for certain companies also which was great, we got two free passes. You could spend hours in here. Kids had a great time. I would recommend it.

Lo, I like the way you think! It quite reasonably could have been called Sioux, but it was named after Sue Hendrickson, the paleontologist who found her.
