The Jewel of the Chicago Museums
The Field Museum is the jewel of the Chicago museums, which is by no means an understatement. Starting with the impressive classical building that houses it (the huge lobby in and of itself justify the visit), through its thematic exhibitions, to the room where a tremendous collection of dinosaur fossils is displayed, everything, absolutely everything is first class. The collection of dioramas with embalmed animals, for example, allows you to see into another era, but it has an undeniable historical value and, of course, is the greatest I've never had the opportunity to see. So, the temporary exhibitions are always spectacular and a must see.
