Comments about Smart Destinations The Field Museum:

We stopped by after the Acquarium and liked the Field Museum much, much better than the Acquarium. Not nearly so crowded and a huge selection of animals in exceptional quality and thoughtful exhibits. We are glad we went!

Bottom Line:

Comments about Smart Destinations The Field Museum:

It was easy to get in with the card, however, we did have to wait quite some time in line so that we could retreive our tickets to the "underground exhibit." We were not the only ones in this situation. Everyone with advanced tickets was stuck in the normal line. Overall, it was worth the wait. We enjoyed the exhibits and we really liked the jewels section, Egyptian artifacts, and the underground soil exhibit. We took a few pictures but would likely not return here.
