Love the Field Museum. A great family destination right on the lake. Tons of great exhibits all the time. The standard exhibits are fun to check out and too much for a single visit, so plan accordingly. The rotating exhibits are always fascinating, as well. With several options for video viewing, the visit can be broken up with a 20-minute show. Lots of parking right on the site, or if you're willing to walk, there are a bunch of pay parking garages nearby for much cheaper.
It all started with the gentleman who collected our entrance fee. In fact, I commented to him about what a great big smile he had. For me, that was out of the ordinary because where I'm from almost nobody smiles, EVER. It turned out that almost all of the museum employees we as happy as he was with only a single exception, the large woman working in the mummy exhibit. Even one of the janitorial staff struck up a conversation with us as we were walking the same direction. What a fantastic time we all had. My recommendation for those visiting, spend the extra money for the all access pass. It was well worth a few extra bucks. Oh, and be sure to wear comfortable shoes. This place is huge.
A must visit place in Chicago! I didn't have much time to go around the whole museum as we were doing many attractions on the same day. You need at least half a day so you can enjoy most of the galleries. I do recommend getting the city pass as it gives you preferential entry and to arrive at 9 am which is when it opens. At the time of our visit, the T-Rex was not on displayed as they were working on relocating her to another room and were getting it ready, not sure how long it'll take. But it is a must go, you will definitely enjoy and be amazed with everything.
My favorite exhibition is "Evolving Planet": it takes the visitor through the history of life on Earth, marking each mass extinction and displaying amazing fossils for each period. It also marks great moments in the evolution of plants (the seed!) and animals (the egg!). Take your time to admire the excellently preserved fossils. I loved that the scientists working on the museum are also part of the exhibitions; sometimes you can even ask them questions directly. 😃
The Field Museum is one of the three or four top natural history museums in the United States. I love the old-school dioramas, the three "man-eater" lions, and the collections of gems, minerals, and meteorites. The anthropological exhibits are great, although I disagree with some of the curatorial choices (for example: the decision to group the exhibits thematically rather than chronologically or culturally makes it difficult to figure out what makes any particular group unique, or to understand changes through time). Sue was not on display when I was there in May 2018, but a cast of Maximo the titanosaur (the largest dinosaur in the world) was being installed in the main hall, which was awesome. This is a great place to spend a day, so my three-hour visit felt rushed. I look forward to coming here again the next time I'm in Chicago.
