Our main aim for our Chicago stopover (between Amtrak journeys) was to visit the Field Museum. We are sooo glad we did. It is brilliant, so much to see.
We spent a second day there, after checking out and leaving our cases at the Essex Inn, as our train did not leave until evening.
Did the huge 'earth timeline' exhibit - with lunch break!
Speaking of lunch -the Corner bakery cafe in the museum has a good range of tasty food at not unreasonable prices. And the staff there are great -spent ages telling us how to save a dollar on our lunch choices (bit of an American/Australian language barrier!) Allow plenty of time for this institution -it's worth it.
