You'll want to do this in 2-3 trips unless you're the type to just walk right through. I like to indulge in the history a little. No way you can do all the exhibits in one trip, so i recommend the membership. If you travel,...More

So much to see, we needed more time. We purchased the City Go Card and this was one of the attractions we picked. So much history on culture, mammals and science. Ate lunch at the cafe.

Sue, the dinosaur is quite the imposing experience. The other dino exhibit is great for the kids as well. So much to see and do, you cannot visit it all in one day. Have a plan of what you want to see.

We went to see the "Tattoo" exhibit but enjoyed other parts much better. The exhibit about evolution was amazing. The gems exhibit could be so much better but I am sure it thrills a lot of people. We joined and look forward to going back...More

We visited the museum with our 12- and 15-year old kids, and absolutely loved it. The only downside is that there is just too much to see. Before we knew it, we had spent 5 hours in the museum and had the feeling that we...More

I haven't been here in years and went to see a special exhibit, but while there we took the time to see a few other permanent exhibits. The sculpture of Malvina Hoffman is spectacular, and I hope they continue to rehab and show more pieces....More

My wife and I went to the field museum and we were pleasantly surprised to see there was a Terra cotta exhibit going on. It was well worth the money. Also, the rest of the exhibits were good too.

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

Hello I know the museums ticket page is kind of confusing. From the looks of it your two exhibits aren't "special ones" I went for the Jurassic park one which was a special exhibit not included in the price. I'm assuming you... More

We ate a nice brunch before we went, so we did not order any of the food. We also decided to take an Uber from our hotel so we didn't have to deal with parking either. I apologize, I hope someone else can help answer these... More
