Brought my husband for his first trip and he was wowed. Sue the dinosaur is a regular. Shrunken heads were a hit. Walking distance to many other great stops!

An amazing place to visit! Paid additional for the Jurrasic World exhibit and that was definitely worth it. Everything the Field does is first class. Lots of hands on activities for all ages. Also did the Underground Soil exhibit which was great. Then of course...More

Be sure to check which exhibits you REALLY want to see because they tack on everything, e.g. it cost my granddaughter and me $90 to see things. There were several exhibits that were inappropriate/uninteresting to us and I wish I had not paid extra for...More

A slightly disappointing experience. The museum exhibits and exhibitions had a tired feel about them. Sue excepted. Cafe lunch was though excellent.

Second only to the American Museum of Natural History museum in New York City, the Field Museum has many interesting exhibits. Loved the dinosaurs, especially Sue, the most complete T-Rex skeleton in existence.

The animal dioramas in the nature exhibit were amazing. One of the most impressive exhibits I've ever seen.

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
