I skipped the first day of a motorcoach tour to re-visit the Field Museum. I spent 4 1/2 hours and still did not see it all. It is housed in an extraordinary building, is logically organized and the exhibits are so well done. I took...More

We made the mistake of making this a last minute half day trip. The online booking was not user-friendly and by the time we arrived, most of the exhibits were sold out. We did still have so much to see and it was very interesting....More

Been going to this museum for (yes) over 65 years. Quality and depth of exhibits must have taken a nosedive maybe starting 10 to 15 years ago. Evolving Planet exhibit still there...too bad much of the rest has degenerated. Looking at reviews, I think many...More

There were a lot of exhibits there. Some of which didn't interest me as much. Again, if you want to see everything here, plan on spending most the day. I just skimmed through what was interesting to myself. I liked the dinosaur skeletons and the...More

One of our absolute favorites when we're in Chicago. A well laid out museum, a lot of various exhibits, and a must see for us whenever we visit Chicago. This place never gets old.

The Field Museum is not to be missed. On display are thousands and thousands of artifacts from any number of scientific and cultural fields. Highlights for my family included artifacts and stories from the native people of Ancient America, people of Africa, the evolving planet...More

My husband and I went here on a Saturday. We had only a few hours to explore the museum due to time constraints, so we only managed the entire first floor. Due to the price, I recommend exploring the whole museum to feel like you...More

Been on the bucket list for a long time after seeing the film The Ghost and the Darkness. Didn't disappoint. Lots of other stuff to see too. Entry fee not cheap.

Another great museum in Chicago. The Mummies exhibition extraordinary as well as China. So much to learn and so little time. It is breath taking when you walk in with the Dinosaurs and the floating garden. All exhibitions are great. Fun time with family.

I have always wanted to visit the Field museum and had my chance. I liked the egypt exhibit and the various exhibits about civlizations. I will say this, seeing the TSavo Lions was interesting. Hard to believe they were maneless lions. All told this was...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
