After the World's Fair, the Field Museum was born and took residence in the Palace of Fine Arts (now the Museum of Science and Industry), in order to display artifacts from the fair. The museum has since changed locations and has grown to include other notable attractions, such as Sue the dinosaur. In 2013, to commemorate the 120 year anniversary of the fair, the museum opened the vaults, showing rarely seen items from its original collection. Head here before September 7th to experience the exhibit.

The field museum is one of my favorite museums that I have ever been to. They have done a great job of presenting history. I really like their Egyptian exhibit.

Similar to NYC's American Museum of Natural History, the Field Museum shares equal viewing expectations and great exhibits of various eras and cultures.

Chicago's Field Museum is considered one of the finest natural history museums in the U.S.It became popular when Steven Spielberg shot scenes here in his
of his Indiana Jones movies.

Not even several mandatory school field trips here when I was a kid could ruin my continuing enjoyment of this natural history wonderland. Be dazzled by the gem hall. Gawk at the dinosaur bones. Learn about the stars or Native American tribes. It's enough to keep you occupied for a dozen rainy days.

I think this is my favorite museum across the entire country :) I love natural history museums and this one is one of the best! There are so many areas I don't know how you can get through it in one day. However, it's not impossible like the American Natural History museum in New York where you literally just feel defeated before you even start to browse through the exhibits.
I like it because the museum is well situated, it's airy on the outside and open on the inside so you don't feel cramped or suffocated with too many things going on. There are dinosaurs and huge skeletal displays everywhere you turn. My favorite was probably the Asian exhibits because they displayed something unique to this museum as most museums try to go a tribal route whereas this one was a little more modern.
I would dedicate probably a good day to this museum if you are planning to visit or you will feel like you need to come back and look through the rest.

One of the world's greatest natural history museums. My favorite item is that they have the ACTUAL "lions of Tsavo" - dramatized in the Michael Douglas film "The Ghost and the Darkness". However, their T-Rex, "Sue", comes a close second!

If you only have time to make it to one museum in Chicago, I'd recommend the Field Museum of Natural History. I always learn something new there whether it's about dinosaurs, the environment or whales (the current exhibit I raced over to see). I knew whales are mammals but I never knew they had evolved from land mammals when food became more plentiful in the oceans than on the land.
