You don’t really know Chicago until you’ve met Field Museum resident Sue. The oldest unearthed skeleton of a T.rex, Sue (who’s originally from South Dakota) greets all visitors to the museum at its front door. From there, you and your children will walk through its fascinating halls of wisdom and wonder that include exhibits on geology, human history, anthropology, and botany. Kids will especially love the exhibits Inside Ancient Egypt, Underground Adventure (where they learn what it’s like to live like a bug), and Evolving Planet (in the dinosaur hall).
