The Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago is a perfect place for anyone looking to go sightseeing in downtown Chicago without having to deal with extremely humid or cold weather. The Field Museum offers exhibits from all over the world and explores evolution from different perspectives.
The Field Museum is one of the rare places where your children will be entertained by the exhibits alone as most of them include taxidermied animals, birds and fish that you can see up close in their natural habitats mimicked for the purpose of being displayed at the museum.
The museum is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., so make sure you plan your visit ahead as these hours might be a little unexpected.
Parking near the museum is available and it will set you back $22 for the whole day.
As far as the tickets go, they range from $18-$31 dollars per person for adult admission and offer you a chance to see different exhibits at different times.
The museum location is breathtaking and your trip down the natural history lane can be combined with a boat tour on the lake, a nice dinner downtown or a walk down Michigan Avenue.
