Must see when in Chicago

The Field Museum is a must-go-to stop when traveling to Chicago. We enjoy the temporary exhibits but there is so much to see that if you have never been, the general ticket will still give you a whole day’s experience. Our favorite section is of course the dinosaurs and Sue but we also spent a lot of time in the Pacific Islands exhibit and gems. There is something for everyone there.

Blissful Experience

What a wonderful, educational experience! We thoroughly enjoyed touring the museum and leisurely exploring different exhibits. The mammals exhibit and Nature Walk were especially well designed and the animals looked as through they could be living and breathing in their glass enclosures. It was absolutely fantastic!

Mummies and Dinosaurs!

The 🦖 dinosaurs were amazing along with the 3D film about them! The only downside was the handicap access. It is quite a way from the handicap parking to the entrance and wheelchairs. Several exhibits, especially where the mummies are are, are difficult to see without standing up and looking over and down. I would love to spend the weekend there and see everything at the Field Museum and Aquarium!

All of them , the native Americans shared a lot of information. I just hope that it was all true and not like the lies they taught us in school.

The underground, the Egyptian exhibit and the Titanasauras/ 3D movie were our favorites. The bistro food was average.

We went specifically to see Sue. She’s well hidden but the staff is helpful and friendly. Lots of info throughout museum, so you need a day if you want to see it all.
