Amazing museum. Unmatched exhibits. Truly phenomenal. Only issue I have is that the admissions person convinced me to purchase the family membership (only$12 more than paying for the four of us for the day so it wasn't a stretch) claiming we could use the membership at museums across the country. I asked if our local museum in California was included and she said yes, but it turns out it is not.
I love visiting the Field Museum! My parents took me all the time as a kid, and now I make it a point to visit if I can when I come back to see them. The exhibits are pretty cool, especially the newer ones. They are also remodeling some of their oldest exhibits to bring them up to the same quality as their newer ones. Fun fact, the American Natural History Museum in New York, which is the basis for the movie Night at the Museum, doesn't actually have a T. Rex in the lobby, but the Field Museum does. You should definitely come in to meet Sue, or any of the other dinosaurs!
I had a good time! Such an enriching experience! Definitely coming back for the mummies and dinosaurs whom I couldn't tour because they were about to close their sides and you need tickets to tour. So make sure you get those! The other areas are free. There is one for Africa, a trail for nature, and another for the history of the Americas and native Americans. I'm sure there are more, but these are the ones I toured!
Nice museum, but the lines were just way too long. The food was decent, but extremely high priced for what you received. They were setting up an event, and this was at least 30 minutes before they closed. That made an already crowded place even tougher to get around. The museum itself is amazing. I'd give 5 stars just for the exhibits. But the full price for entry and then there's a few extra charges we're not worth going on a weekend. This is somewhere that you need to visit during the week to take in the full experience. That's something I could not stress enough. Look for deals if you're not looking to spend a lot of money. Avoid weekends. And MAKE SURE that you call ahead to see if there's any special events going on. Family of four, I'd say that you need to bring between $150-$200....
I've been here at least 3 times, and I've enjoyed it every single time. The exhibits are fun to look at, they give in-depth explanations of what happened and what you're looking at. The staff were very helpful as well. My favorite part is probably the giant dinosaur skeletons that you see right when you walk in, it's such a surreal yet amazing experience.
