The Field Museum of Natural History, l history museum in Chicago, and is one of the largest such museums in the world. The museum maintains its status as a premier natural history museum through the size and quality of its educational and scientific programs, as well as due to its extensive scientific specimen and artifact collections. The diverse, high quality permanent exhibitions attract million visitors annually. I would say you can literally spend the whole day here reading and getting lost in the history. The museum is overwhelming but I would say it’s perfect for all ages. If you buy a City Pass, your admission includes the special exhibits. The underground and the china exhibits are the both equally informative. Personally, I would chose the China exhibit over the soil. I would love to bring my daughter to this museum because they have an area of mammals, birds and reptiles which would be an interest to her. I love the T-REX statue which is found at entrance.
I'm not a great fan of the stuffed animals in boxes thing, so veer away from natural history museums, but there's so much more to this stunning museum. The tyrannosaurus fossil is the most amazing I've seen and would be worth the price of admission alone. There's a lovely Native American exhibit and the jade was very impressive too. Surprisingly for a museum like this they've made a real effort on their cafeteria too, so you won't have to compromise there. All in all, a must see.
We went here in July. After touring Soldier Field all morning this place was awesome. It's quite spacious inside even for a very busy day. We walked almost all of the museum and had a great time. The Bistro Bar had a wide assortment of hot and cold food. plenty of snacks and drinks. everything seemed clean and well taken care of. I would definitely recommend a visit. You should plan on at least three hours. If your are going to see some of the shows / movies I would add some time to your visit.
A truly amazing place. Plan two to three days to adequately explore all this has to offer. I spent a full day, open to close, and barely saw a third of the exhibits. Ticket lines went smoothly and the staff was very friendly and helpful. A rare gem for fans of science and history. I hate to admit it, but the field museum puts many other fine institutions to shame. A must see for residents and tourists alike. Some of the displays are quite old, but that adds a unique view back into the long, glorious history of the place. The worst thing about my experience was trying to decide what to see. Far too many wonderful artifacts to choose from.
What an amazing place to visit. I only wish I had more time to explore and read everything. Out of all the museums I visited in Chicago, I thought that this was the most interesting. There was so much here to look at that I could have spent two days here learning about what they have on display. The special exhibitions that you have to pay extra to see are well worth it an I recommend.
