Full description
Visit the Field Museum of Natural History, one of Chicago's great museums. With more than 35 world-renowned natural history exhibitions, there's something for everyone. Imagine subterranean life in the Underground Adventure exhibit, where you'll “shrink” to 1/100th of your natural size to explore the world beneath the surface. Admire sparkling gemstones in the Hall of Gems, and marvel at one of the largest collections of Chinese jade in North America in the Hall of Jades. Then, follow the stories of the Ice Age mammoth hunters and the temples of the Inca and Aztecs, or visit the Dinosaur Hall Evolving Planet exhibit to mingle with giant sloths, woolly mammoths, Sue, and Maximo. All this is included with the General Admission Ticket option. Choose the Early Access VIP Tour option for an experience upgrade featuring a one hour VIP small-group tour of the museum's dinosaurs with an expert before the museum opens to the general public. Take pictures with Sue or Maximo without the crowds. Then explore the rest of the museum on your own with an all-access ticket that also includes a 3D movie titled "Waking the T-Rex."

Great museum. I would bring my own water bottle next time as the water fountains are only available for water bottle refill. Give yourself plenty of time to wander-so much to see. Sue was excellent, really enjoyed learning about her.

The museum was so much more than I expected. We spent nearly two hours and did not see all of it. We made sure to take our time in the dinosaur exhibit and loved it!
