Explore one of Chicago's most popular museums guided by your own in-app audio tour! Established in 1894, the Field Museum of Natural History holds over 35 world-renowned natural exhibitions. It's a great place to visit for all ages! This self-guided tour will take you through the museum's highlights and must-sees at your own pace. Start your journey by saying "hi" to Máximo the Titanosaur, the largest dinosaur ever discovered, and to the magnificent African elephants. Learn about giants like polar bears and dangerous man-eaters like Tsavo lions through finely elaborated dioramas, as you stroll along the Nature Walk. Then, you will get inside the Ancient Egyptian tomb and see 4,000-year-old mummies and sarcophagi that secure incredible history! On the Upper Level, you will marvel at sparkling gemstones and mysterious meteorites. Follow the steps of evolution, from bacteria to humans, at Evolving Planet exhibit. Another iconic giant will give you a "smile" here – SUE the T.rex, one of the world’s most perilous predators. Note! This tour is not affiliated with the FMNH but is provided by an independent creator. WeGoTrip is not re-selling tickets but is giving its customers assistance in ticket purchasing at no charge.
