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

Had a good 4 hours in the Field; could have spent a few more without complaint, and without seeing all of the incredible exhibits on display. Saw the current "Terracotta Warriors" exhibit, which was worth the price of admission alone, but also all of the...More

This is a fantastic museum and well worth a visit (or two)! The Field Museum is also known as the natural history museum. We arrived at 9am when they opened and were there until they closed at 5pm. In those 8 hours, there were still...More

I've been here once as a kid was dying to go back last time I was in the city, so I dragged my fiancé here and we loved it. We didn't cover everything, but the Ancient Egypt exhibit is a classic. My favorite was the...More

This is the best natural history museum I've ever been to, including the one in Washington, DC. They had the largest collection of mammals and birds I've ever seen. The exhibit on Africa was presented in an interesting way to understand this continent. It was...More

We enjoyed this museum but felt they are resting on their laurels with many of these exhibits. The taxidermy animals were somewhat creepy and was something of a dated "throwback" to 1926. I enjoyed the museum but felt they could do better.

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
