“Fun Museum! Cool Exhibits”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2012

The Field Museum is always a fun time because they have such an impressive collection, both on permanent display and through their exhibits which are always superb. This is my second favorite museum in Chicago behind MSI, and definitely worth a look!

“Very Cool! Don't miss Sue!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2012

Im very glad we went to the Field Museum.. it was a rainy day... so perfect for a museum day with my mom and 11 yr old son.
He was actually more interested in the Egyptian exhibit than "Sue" the most complete T Rex.. ha ha but we loved it all... and the cafe is serves pretty decent food.
