Went recently to the field museum to see the terra-cotta soldiers from China. The exhibit was phenomenal. Didn't know much about their history, but it was really fascinating. The exhibit about ancient civilizations in North America was really good as well. The gem collection was...More

Outstanding exhibits feed a multitude of interests. Great play area for little ones. The Native American/Indigenous exhibits are my favorites, but the Egyptian collection is also well worth your time.

The Field Museum is great. They have great exhibits. We saw the Chinese Terracotta Warriors and was worth it. There are several paid exhibits that cost extra, so prepare for that, but they have two passes if you want to see those specific exhibits. Beautiful...More

Day trip to the Field museum was great. If you are military...don't forget your ID. I got I for free! One of the main exhibits were the terra-cotta warriors. Absolutely Fantastic!

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
