Field Museum

Nature, History

The massive teeth of a T. Rex named Sue greet visitors inside the grand lobby of the Field Museum, foreshadowing the halls of natural wonders to be discovered within.  Blockbuster shows revolve around crowd-pleasing topic such as chocolate, gold and Jackie Kennedy, but the real joy of this natural-kingdom museum is getting lost down its many dark halls, where towering totem poles, mysterious Egyptian mummies and man-eating lions (taxidermied) lurk.  International in scope and richly historical, the museum excels at providing an experiential environment, beyond the crowded display cases of specimens.
