The Field is a must see for anyone visiting Chicago. My granddaughter was especially interested in going because she wants to be a zoologist or a veterinarian. Sue the Tyrannosaur was not on display in the main hall because they are setting her up in...More

Absolutely outstanding collections! Mummy exhibit was fascinating. Animal collections are first rate in sheer numbers of specimens. Remember, in the old days this was about the only way for most people to see exotic species. Man Eaters of Tsavo was interesting. Wish I’d gotten to...More

At the Field Museum, we started by going through the century-old dioramas depicted taxidermied animals in natural-looking environments. The exhibits illustrate how these ecosystems work, and what we can do to preserve them. We then saw the "Mummies" exhibit, which showed how a culture's treatment...More

Visit this incredible if not historical museum of the midwest. This is more of a palace museum than anything else there along the lake front.

We visited the Field Museum on Spring Break using our City Pass after visiting the Shedd Aquarium first (only a short walk). Kids (9 and 13) loved it even more than Shedd, especially the dino show.

We had high Hope's, but the place seems to fail to use the huge amount of space. Enjoyed the 3D movie a d the mummy exhibit, but wouldn't return. Also, ticketing staff (guy) was extremely rude.

Our family enjoyed a quick visit to the Field Museum. They have several levels of exhibits with great examples of animals, birds, and more. There is also a nice children's play area in the lowest level for small children.

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.
