We went to see the China exhibit from the Xian clay soldiers and were not disappointed. It was not a large exhibit, but well lit, informative, and we came away more knowledgable about this amazing find.

Started and named after the Marshall Field family, this has long been one of the major Chicago attractions. From T-Rex Sue to the fascinating multitude of halls on nearly every natural aspect of the world, the Field Museum always amazes. You can easily spend a...More

Great Chicago spot. World famous. So much to see and learn. History and the world civilizations are told through exhibits. However, closes at 5pm on weekdays. Get an early start.

Every time I'm in town, I go back to this museum. This museum consistently displays smartly and creatively their topics. Not only do they have abundant items but they also take advantage of modern technologies in order to enhance a viewer's learning experience.

Have been to this museum on several occasions. This visit we were excited to see the Terracotta Warriors exhibit. However, we found it a bit underwhelming. Consisted of two smaller rooms with several statues and wall graphics. All for an extra charge. It was suggested...More

The museum is continually making improvements to the exhibits. We go a lot and there is something to see and do that's new or renovated quite often. The China exhibit is great. The interactive screens keep the kids interested as they can use the screens...More

This was a great museum. I especially liked Sue the T-Rex. They had many great exhibits. It takes a long time to go through.

We visited the Field Museum today, specifically to see the Terra Cotta Warriors from China. Wow...what a magnificent display and the 3D film that goes with iron how they were discovered was the cherry on the top!

Loved the Ancient China exhibit. Wish we had more time because there is so much to see. Food at the bistro was pretty good too.

The main content is not that different from the British Museum in London which is free...as are a lot of similar museums. They charge you to get in, then charge you for additional exhibitions...then have the cheek to put a donation box asking for further...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
