Every time I visit the Field Museum I am impressed. The permanent exhibits like the natural history and dinosaur sections are always fun and interesting. Seeing Sue the T-rex never gets old. Plus, the special exhibits are truly fascinating and are a chance to see something new and educational. The gift shops are neat to roam around, too. The staff are friendly and if you get a chance to speak with them, you'll learn some interesting things and have an enjoyable, personable conversation.

Great place to kill a day while visiting Chicago. This was on my wife's list of things and we visited while they had the Vikings exhibit. The Vikings exhibit was really extensive and informative. We ended up walking out overextended because we looked and took in so much. Overall it was a great time and would highly recommend it!

We ended up going here as a consolation prize since the aquarium had insane lines. We got in pretty fast, and opted for the all-inclusive pass. Tickets are a bit expensive, but you don't end up spending much more for the all-inclusive pass. The 3D movie we saw was about Africa and had some of the most beautiful footage I've seen on the big screen. Gorgeous! There's so much to see in this museum. We spent most of the day here and I don't think we saw 1/3 of what they had to offer. The terracotta army exhibit was the best experience I've had in a museum so far. There were so many fascinating facts to discover as we passed through.

The wait to get in was over an hour. They need a more efficient entrance process. We lost over an hour of time we could have spent enjoying the museum. The staff inside were great though. I was also quite frustrated they only let us out the back doors of the museum and since we came in from the front we got very lost and it ruined our evening plans. I was also frustrated because we got the all access pass, but weren't told you could only visit each exhibit once, so after waiting in line yet again for the underground exhibit, we went to wait in line for the 3D movie and thought we could come back to the underground exhibit, rather than rush through it in 10 mins then not be allowed back, however the exhibit closed an hour before the rest of the museum, so we wound up missing it entirely. A few other exhibits closed earlier also, that I felt we missed out on because of having to wait so long to get in. I personally feel the museum should be open later than 5pm also.

Great museum! 3 large floors so either get there early and plan to spend the entire day or plan to do multiple days. If you really like to take your time and read every exhibit, you probably need a day per floor. Quite a variety of exhibits from animals & skeletons to countries & culture to varied collections. When I went they had the Chinese Terracotta Warriors and the Women of Vision photography exhibits, which were both fabulous! The museum is definitely worth a visit...or two...or three!

Want to learn something interesting while in Chicago? Want to see something you don't see everyday? The field museum is the place for you. Th building itself is a huge gorgeous limestone building that houses tons of exhibits. The museum specializes in natural and human history, there is something for everyone here. Worth a visit if you're in Chicago, the crowds here usually aren't bad even on weekends

Very large with tons of things to look at, read and take pictures of. You'll have to be hoghly motivated and focused to take it all in on one day. Otherwise, I recommend taking it in over two days or prioritizing your favorite/most interesting exhibits first.

Great stuff here, but it's incredibly difficult to see everything and because of the layout, you have to do some backtracking. You need at least 5 to 6 hours to get thru...maybe more if you buy a movie. We spent 5 hours there and bought a movie but didn't even get to watch it nor did we get to finish going thru the exhibits!
