The Field Museum Chicago

Focusing on natural history, the Field Museum opens doors onto fascinating science and world cultures for visitors of every age. Perhaps the most popular exhibit is the Evolving Planet, where dinosaurs rule as they did ages ago! Other exhibits include artifacts from Ancient Egypt and the Ancient Americas displays. In the D3D Cinema, Titans of the Ice Age is a thrilling 3D movie that introduces creatures of the cold like wooly mammoths, saber-tooth cats, and dire wolves.
