One of the great natural history/anthropology collections in the US. Don't miss the underground Egypt experience. But eat somewhere else! The restaurants are pretty bad.

Visited with my young adult kids and had a great time walking the exhibits. Regarding tickets, first get them ahead of your visit but more importantly print them out at home on paper. They make you stand in line if you have the mobile tickets....More

Great museum, structured the different collections into stories which makes it way more interesting to visit. And of course Sue the T Rex in the main hall is just already great visually!

What can you say it's the Field Museum. This was beyond what I had expected. Please plan to stay for a whole day to see all of the museum. I can't wait to return to this wonderful place.

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
