This is a great place to spend the day. And yes you need a full day and you still might not see it all. Some exhibits you need a ticket for but trust me it is worth it. There is so much to see so...More

If you are From the UK, go to the Native American displays they are amazing, you won’t have seen such a broad and spectacular display on this field. It is worth a visit for this alone. The rest of it although impressive you can see...More

My wife and I visited The Field Museum of Natural History on Valentines Day. Luckily there were not to many school field trips on this day. We missed a couple of the exhibit halls, and they were in the process of moving Sue (T-Rex). However...More

Visited this museum on a cold Chicago day. It has wonderful displays and the staff were very helpful. We stayed there for three hours and will be able to go back for years and never see it all. Wonderful animal exhibits. Rode the red line...More

Very poor value for money. Like a dull American office building inside, drab exhibits, acres of beige corridors. A potentially wonderful building but essentially empty space. Visit a museum like the Natural History, Science, or V&A in London and you’ll see what a world-class museum...More

We really thought the permanent jewel and jem exhibit was worth the time. We don't like the tiered prices--overall disappointing for the price. Cafe price was not commensurate with quality either. If you have a reciprocal membership you will still be charged quite a bit...More

Chicago does museums right and the Field Museum is the natural history crown jewel. The museum permanent exhibits are great, traveling exhibits amazing and you can spend days exploring every corner.

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

Hello I know the museums ticket page is kind of confusing. From the looks of it your two exhibits aren't "special ones" I went for the Jurassic park one which was a special exhibit not included in the price. I'm assuming you... More

We ate a nice brunch before we went, so we did not order any of the food. We also decided to take an Uber from our hotel so we didn't have to deal with parking either. I apologize, I hope someone else can help answer these... More
