    The Field Museum

    Field Museum

    Favorite thing: The Field Museum offers a lot of educational insight into our everyday lives. It allows us to examine the things around us: animals, plants, history, culture, etc. The museum has something for everyone. If you want to know something about Africa, there's an exhibit for that. If you like fossils, there's an exhibit for that. This is one great museum with all kinds of knowledge packed in one place!

    The Famous Field Museum

    Favorite thing: I remember taking "field trips" to the Field Museum as a kid and never catching on to the fact that it was named for the same family that founded Marshall Fields (the department store) and the museum major benefactor.

    In 2002 I enjoyed a trip to see a special exhibit on Pearls. But I'll always remember this elephant in the main hall...

    FIELD MUSEUM. More than 6...

    Favorite thing: FIELD MUSEUM. More than 6 acres of exhibits fill this gigantic museum, which explores cultures and environments around the world, from the secrets of Egyptian mummies, to the peoples of Africa and the Pacific Northwest. As part of Inside Ancient Egypt, the remarkable Mastaba complex includes a working canal, a living marsh, a shrine, and 23 mummies. Don't miss the Life over Time: DNA to Dinosaurs exhibit, which traces the evolution of life on Earth from one-celled organisms to the great reptiles.
