Some museums only tell you bits and pieces but the Field Museum has so much information if you take the time to read it all. Leaned lots from the special exhibit on mummies and how they were prepared and the science used now to explore...More

Enjoyed the special China exhibits and films, as well as the Native American exhibits. You can't miss some of the dinasauers...one of the Field's specialties.

We got there RIGHT when they opened, so we were able to get through the museum in 3.5 hours, but if you have kids and/or get there after it's been open for a bit, plan 5ish hours. There is SO much to see! I feel...More

This is one of the great museums of the world, and it's convenient and inexpensive. You will need more than one or two days to cover it all.

The Field Museum is a great place to take even young children. The kids will love the dinosaurs and interactive exhibits. You could spend between 3 hours to 3 days here.

Spent several hours there with family on a Saturday. Saw a 3D movie and some of the special exhibits. They were all fantastic, especially the Mummies and the Dianosuers Of the Artic. Did not even get to the top floor.

In Dallas we have the Perot Museum and we are proud of it. The Field Museum makes the Perot look small in comparison. One could spend an entire day or more visiting the collections in all the halls. If your time is short, make sure...More

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the Field Museum, but for me, I needed to have spent a week here. I only got through about 3 exhibits in their entirety during a day-long venture here, though my teenagers all insisted they finished seeing "everything" in...More

What an amazing museum! There is so much to see that you can’t possibly get it all in in one day. We were disappointed to learn that Sue is currently not on display. We didn’t know that ahead of time. Also, we got our tickets...More

It's been quite some years since our visit but we can't resist reviewing it, at the time we visited they had a 'Jurassic Period' type special exhibit going on. Sue was on loan to other museums at the time so we were unable to see...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

Lo, I like the way you think! It quite reasonably could have been called Sioux, but it was named after Sue Hendrickson, the paleontologist who found her.

I agree, take Uber X for your group. Transit options still have some walking involved and lots of waiting. 45 minutes or more to get to your destination. Uber X 15 or 20 minutes. I rented a bike and rode but for a group that... More
