CHICAGO | The Field Museum of Natural History is among the largest museums in the world. Sitting regally on Chicago’s lakefront, the museum campus is a source of excellent views and beautiful neoclassical architecture. Originally named the Columbian Museum of Chicago, this museum started out of the World’s Columbian Exposition and was then funded by Marshall Field by the request of Edward Ayer. The museum was incorporated into the state of Illinois in 1893 and later in 1905 was renamed The Field Museum of Natural History.

With a variety of permanent as well as temporary exhibitions and traveling shows, there is a wide array of pieces to see at the Field Museum. Some permanent exhibitions include the Nature walk, Mammals of Asia & Africa, Underground Adventures, and Inside Ancient Egypt. And of course we can’t forget “SUE” – the largest, best-preserved, and most complete Tyrannosaurus rex ever found in the world. Current specials at the museum include: Cyrus Tang Hall of China, Art and Anthropology: Portrait of the Object as Filipino; and Drawing on Tradition: Kanza Artist Chris Pappan. Also look out Jurassic World: The Exhibition coming to Chicago May 26th, 2017.
