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
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
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

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
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
is one of Chicago’s premier locations for green space and recreation with views of Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline. Take a stroll down memory lane in the historic Prairie District where you can enjoy views of old historic homes. Restaurants, theaters, and clubs are spread throughout the neighborhood along with a collection of burger joints along Michigan Avenue just across from the park.
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
