View a wide array of changing and permanent exhibits, and enjoy hands-on activities for children. Meet Sue, the T-Rex, explore Underground Adventure, Evolving Planet, and Restoring the Earth. Take a docent-led tour of Pawnee Earth Lodge, see the wonders of  Galapagos and Wild Africa in 3D, or travel back in time to Ancient Egypt and the Americas. The Field Museum is part of Chicago's Museum Campus where the Adler Planetarium and Shedd Aquarium are also housed.
