“Well worth the money”
Reviewed July 27, 2008

We spent about 4 1/2 hours at the museum. The attractions were interesting with lots of available information to read for those that want to.

The dinosaur and Egyptian areas were my favorites.

Other people complained about the number of children. We arrived at opening and avoided most of that crowd. By the time we left though, they were getting thick and noisy and it became noticeably less peaceful.

If I only had time to see one attraction in Chicago, this would be it!

“BUNCH OF RUDE STAFFS!”
Reviewed July 9, 2008

The staffs couldn't wait to go home on the dot at 5pm and closed all the main exhibits, even the toilets by 4.30pm when the closing time said 5pm for visitors. We traveled more than 1 hr to the museum with a family from Ohio to see the exhibits and being a big place, we are extremely upset about the deliberate half hour early closure. The whole bunch of staffs gathered at the information counter are sarcastic and rude when brought to their attention.

“Not Impressed”
Reviewed June 17, 2008

I was not impressed at all...not only was this museum boring, but every employee that we ran into had a personality of a rock, asking a question seemed like a big inconvenience to them and going threw the line to get tickets reminded me of how prisoners would be treated going threw intake...if you want to go to a good museum and be treated well I suggest going to The Museum of Science and Industry!!

“best museum I've ever been”
Reviewed June 10, 2008

It's enormous, I've never been on a museum so big. It's very near other attractions, such as the aquarium, the planetarium, etc. Best of all it has complete dinosaurs. Very cool for pictures =)
