Didn't buy tickets ahead and was fine. No line at 2 on Thursday. Bought regular admission plus Lasceux Cave exhibit. Great museum for us with 2 teenage daughters. Sue the T Rex is the highlight. There approx 2 1/2 hours & saw everything wanted to. Parking was easy right next 2 museum $20.

The Field Museum has so much going for it that you and your children will have plenty to see and do inside this amazing collection of prehistoric bones, amazing artifacts, and the numerous exhibits that are available to see. Along with The Art Institute and Millennium Park, Grant Park, Chicago has so much to offer visitors of all ages. Highly recommend the current exhibit regarding a cave found in France that is simply amazing....it along with worth the price of admission.

If you have done the Washington mall skip this. Seen one dinosaor seen them all. I found myself just rushing through this just so we could get back to the city and the beach. Ok for for a school field trip, or if you never have been to a museum.

Decent museum but completely unworthy of its status. The 3D show is a joke with such a small screen. The exhibits can do better than just being unique. The museum has to step up to make it more interesting for children & toddlers.

The field museam was the funnest thing we did in chicago. Im ten yrs old and enjoyed it very much. We got the all acess pass and saw the titans of the ice age movie and went in all of the special exihbits. The underground adventure was my favorite. In the exibit about the earth, my dad made a joke.... Mass extinction 4 we're back for more! That made it my second favorite:D! Over all i learned a lot and had a blast!!!!
