Although the building itself is beautiful the exhibits themselves felt very childish. I have been to many many museums and left this one bored

We took the grandkids, ages 4 and 7, to see the Jurassic World exhibit and they loved it. Then we spent another 4 hours exploring other areas of the museum.

It isn’t a must-see. I found it a bit boring and not well organized. Some parts were interesting but overall you can skip it.

One of the best museums in the country. Worth every penny. The number of exhibits is astounding. Even if your family doesn't seem interested in going to a natural history or whatever museum, they will thank you for insisting. Go!

I was in town for an extra day before a conference and this seemed like a good way to spend a cold, windy day. I bought the deluxe pass (that's not the name). It was $36 instead of the regular ticket at $30. It included...More

We stayed until closing time and were rushing around towards the end. There is so much to see and read here. They have an awesome T-Rex to view and a 3-D theater (I would skip because it's NOT an Imax screen). They have exhibits from...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
