Ever wanted to travel back 4.6 billion years, and come face to face with a real T-Rex? You might want to head to Chicago’s Field Museum then!
The Field Museum is your ticket to travel the world and back in time. Through various exhibits, the family can explore an ancient Egyptian tomb, shrink down to the size of a bug or even experience amazing 3D theatre shows!
The family can find out all about our Evolving Planet, where you can learn all about life on earth, from single-celled organisms, to those towering dinosaurs. There are unique fossils and fun interactive displays that will keep all inquisitive minds intrigued!
The Ancient Americas transports you into the world of the Ice Age, with mammoths and the Aztec world, and the Grainger Hall of Gems lets you check out all the beautiful, colorful and rare gems, jewels and gold from around the world!
Those littlest explorers will love to harvest corn in the museum’s life-sized pueblo, and explore an Illinois woodland. The Crown Family PlayLab is also THE place for those smaller adventurers, where they can be natural scientists, dress up and explore! The PlayLab is free with basic admission, and is where kids can discover hidden objects, uncover dinosaur bones, and examine insects in amber.
So much fun for them to do!
