“I will not visit again, very overrated !”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

I visited the museum today, on March 9, 2012. The museum is not well organized, the special exhibitions are short and not so interesting, lacks of information. Need to be reorganized and modernized. The building is very nice though. Too expensive. We had a City Pass because we spent 3 days in Chicago. Worth buying because otherwise the museum fees are too high and does not worth it. I will not be back again. We just wanted to see the place because kind of famous but I really don't understand why.

“Interesting artifacts”
Reviewed 9 March 2012

We went to the Field Museum as the line was around the corner for the Shedd Aquarium. It was interesting. They currently have a Mummies and Ghengis Khan attraction. I saw both and would pass on the mummies as it is similar to their normal mummy attraction. Ghengis Khan was interesting but short. Overall, I wouldn't go again but it is worth going if you have never been.

“Luv field museum”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

I personally love field museum, it's convenient, beautiful building structure, tons to look at and learn, the dino display is amazing, however if you have very young kid (under 4), they might get scare for some of the display, like the mummys and darker display, but if you are adults, this is definitly one of the must see in Chicago together with the art institute.
