  • The museum is so big you need more than one day to see all of. Beware on football game days the traffic is kind of crazy.

  • Sabrina J. are you AMAZING! This was our first time at fields museum and Sabrina made our experience memorable. As soon as we walked in, we were greeted by Sabrina‚Äôs awesome smile. She made us feel welcome and took the time with going over all different exhibits and 3D shows Fields has to offer. After a long time, it felt good to experience a great customer service. Thank you once again Sabrina and we will be recommending you to our friends and family.
  • Incredible. A massive collection of 24 million pieces. Plants, animals, minerals and cultures. Took 5+ hours to walk and see everything. Well worth the price to go to all of the ticketed exhibits. If you have kids you are going to want to split this into 2 days or just decide what you NEED to see and miss some things. Sue, the T-Rex, is amazing. The underground adventure is aimed towards young children, has a Disney-type feel to it, adults can probably skip unless you love soil and bugs. So, so, so much information to take in, and in a beautiful architectural building. Highly recommend.
