“GREAT exhibits”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

Every exhibit was fascinating. Learned so much from the culture exhibits. Dinosaurs great. Spent one day at Field and one at Museum of Science & Industry...wish we had spent 2 days at Field and skipped the other. Museum of Science/Industry very hands on...not as much DEEP knowledge. Exhibits of NW American Indian Culture amazing with the house and totem poles.

“Wish I had more time here”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

I am a history person and could have spent 2 days here. A huge amount of things to check out. For the two 14 year olds with me though, 4+ hours was enough, by that time they were hungry and ready to move on. Up until that time though they really enjoyed it as well.

“WOW! You must take your kids here”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Our four year old daughter was mesmerized by one room after the other. The building itself is awesome and the exhibits are insane. The Ancient Egypt tomb is immense and transports you to another place. The only reason this isn't five stars is because we're members of the Natural History Museum in Los Angeles, so the animal exhibits were lost on us; amazing, but been there done...

“Lucy! I'm home!”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Lucy the T Rex is the greatest archaeological find in the world - ever. Super Cool 3-D movie to boot. Vintage exhibits dating back 100 years are extraordinary...new stuff worked in well. Make your own wax dinosaur for $3 is awesome!
