Field Museum contains permanent exhibits that range from the earliest fossils to present cultures around the world. Attracting nearly 2 million visitors each year, the museum houses a collection of over 20 million anthropological and cultural artifacts from distant corners of the globe. The museum includes the Tyrannosaurus Rex named "Sue," the best-preserved fossil ever discovered. Named after the person who found it in 1990, the fossil stands 4 m (13 ft) tall and is 67 million years old. You can also visit the exhibit recreating an Egyptian burial chamber, which contains 23 real mummies, and a section devoted to the natural habitats of animals and insects living underground.

Field Museum reviews
Wish we had had more time here... wonderful museum with SO MANY wonderful exhibits. If you can only spend a short time, be sure to see "Sue, the T-Rex". more »
I always try to add a museum visit to my itinerary whenever I travel. Visiting a large city like Chicago offers many museums- more than most people could possibly cover in a short span of time. If... more »
The Field Museum was very likely the best museum I've ever had the chance to visit. I was surprised at how many exhibits there were and the quality of each one kept me engaged throughout my entire visit. Although younger children may enjoy some of the exhibits, the vast majority of them would be enjoyed more by older visitors. I recommend planning a visit that will last the whole day, as you'll need that much time to see everything you'll want to see. Trust me, a day spent at this museum will be completely worth it.
Great place has so many fantastic exhibits. The dinosaurs, up on the second floor especially Sue makes the visit complete. I enjoyed the added benefit of looking out at the various views of the City of Chicago from the dinosaurs room. Incredible!!The entire staff is very friendly joy filled and knowledgeable. A special word of thanks is deserved for the custodial department. They perform their work at the most optimal level with little thanks and praise. The Theater in the basement is magnificent with plenty of space and comfortable seating. The Geological exhibitions are well organized clean and insightful. This is an underappreciated exhibit and needs strong recognition. The various videos that demonstrate conservation and humanitarian efforts are tremendous. A gem of the State of Illinois. Attend
