  • The Field Museum is a must-see attraction. We spent about five hours here and we sped through a decent amount of the exhibits. There‚Äôs nothing that I can say here that will prepare you for the pure size of this place. So many exhibits just keep going and going. We had the City Pass which got us into all of the exhibits. We had a quick bite to eat at the cafe. There are a lot of vending machines and drinks available throughout. Wear comfy shoes because you will walk a lot!
  • It was an amazing trip! We paid out of state fees and we paid for all the special exhibitions. It was worth it. It took us all day to be able to get through the whole place and all the exhibitions. Chairs or benches available in every room. Stairs and elevators are available as well. Restrooms are super clean and you can find them near every area or exhibition. You can bring your own food and they have a few big cafeteria areas inside and outside to enjoy your break. Parking is not very close; we walked a few blocks to be able to get to the first available parking lot and paid $25 all day (not so bad for a Chicago parking space!). It is a great place to visit with kids or without kids.
