The Field Museum

The Field Museum began in 1893 with a collection of objects from the then-ongoing Chicago World's Fair, beginning a more than century-long exploration of science, art, and archaeology. These days, the Museum—which shares a lakefront campus with the John G. Shedd Aquarium and the Adler Planetarium—contains more than 26 million artifacts and specimens. The collection is so massive that only 1% of its items can be displayed at a time, though that 1% features plenty of historically significant doozies.

To get a picture of them, you need look no further than the 19 mummies that grace the Inside Ancient Egypt exhibition, where they rest among an actual Book of the Dead. Then there's SUE, the most complete Tyrannosaurus rex ever found. Stretching 42 feet from snout to tail, the towering T. rex sports a more than 90% complete skeleton, not to mention 58 sharp teeth. Equally sharp are the jewels in the Grainger Hall of Gems and the definition of the visuals displayed on the 3D Theater's massive screen.

To keep the Museum's permanent and rotating exhibitions up to date, The Field Museum's scientists conduct research at global field sites and on the collection itself. To learn how the Museum is beginning to catalog our world for future museumgoers, check out the Groupon Guide's recent visit.

Reach early, plan to spend the whole day. Lots of interesting things to learn/know.

Get there early, there's a lot of great stuff to see! We spent (5) hours there and could have spent more. Also, food at the bistro on the main lobby is pretty good.
