Since the museum first opened in 1894 their collection has grown to nearly 40 million artifacts and specimens total. The collection began in the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition.
This museum has tons of exhibits celebrating previous cultures plus permanent exhibits on the Ancient Americas, Africa, Asia, the Pacific and more. It also celebrates legendary animals that actually walked the planet before you. It’s a fascinating look at our world that you could never have experienced on your own. Their 3D films put you right in the action, and the exhibits will inspire and intrigue you. The Field Museum is one of the best attractions for Chicago educational tours, hands down.
