One thing I really loved about this museum was that it has just the right amount of exhibits so it's not completely overwhelming. There are a good variety of exhibits, including dinosaur bones (Sue) and part of an Egyptian tomb. It was a great start...More

The "WOW" factor was just plain missing. As a child it was an awesome experience to walk into the Field Museum and see the large animal bones, very exciting. We saw 2 fighting elephants on the main level which were magnificent but that was it!...More

We were in Chicago for just the weekend so we came to the museum for my granddaughter who had never been. There is always something you missed before or is new. They are working on a T-Rex exhibit coming next year.

This is a great place to spend the day. And yes you need a full day and you still might not see it all. Some exhibits you need a ticket for but trust me it is worth it. There is so much to see so...More
