This museum is so cool, the Indiana Jones made it his home base. The two leading ladies of archeology welcome you into the place; the friendly Tyrannosaur skeleton named Sue and the oldest human fossil on record, Lucy. With twenty million items on exhibit, the museum is impossible to cover comprehensively in one day; nor should you want to. Each display is a story in itself, outlining curious and precious points of human history. When you’re visiting, make sure to have identified beforehand exactly what it is that you’d like to explore. The evolution exhibit is a must see. And if you like stones, the diamonds on display here will make your jaw drop.

It was a really nice museum. Very clean, a lot to do, u can get lost for hours. The African cultural experience was really worth while. The Asian exhibits were very detailed and informative. The plant exhibitions was unbelievable and a great learning environment. The cafeteria was okay, so was the food. The 3-D movie on ancient China with the clay warriors was phenomenal.
This place is even more amazing than i remembered. Loved the tattoo exhibit with live tattooing. 3d movie(something about Egypt and mummy's) while interesting was not very good as far as the 3d graphics. They have new exhibits frequently and the place is big enough to keep you busy the whole day. If your teenager is like mine and wants constant excitement leave them at home like i will next time. Lol
My favorite museum ever! There is so much to see, I could spend all day here. I've been going to the Field Museum since I was a kid and never tire of it. I've seen some really cool traveling exhibitions over the years in addition to their great permanent exhibitions. I live out-of-state now, but I always stop by the museum when visiting. Ticket prices are reasonable. And the museum is so big that even when there's a lot of people there, it doesn't seem that crowded.
This place to me did not live up to the hype. We had the city pass, we still had to wait in an hour line to check in. The exhibits were in tight close quarters. The place was packed and people were everywhere. The rooms for exhibits were very warm. Good news it is on the bus route. The movie that was showing was really interesting and the theater was nice and cool.
My family used to be members, but resigned our membership after being treated very poorly by the staff: We arrived at the museum at 2pm, were made to stand in line for 40 minutes just to drop off our coats. When it was our turn to hand in our coats we were told to stand in line again at a different counter "for members" to get a stick-on decal, THEN return to drop off the coats. All in all we spent 2 hours standing line. By the time we were done "checking in", it was almost closing time. When I asked to talk to a supervisor I was told by one of the staffers to "go find a comment box and drop in a note". If that's how supporting members are treated, what can an "ordinary" visitor expect? - Absolutely NOT recommended!
