The Field Museum
In five hours we managed to see just two exhibits – The Ancient Americans and Evolving Planet. Both are excellent. Ancient Americans explores the history of North and South American native cultures. The exhibits are very good and the quality of the artifacts is wonderful. The Evolving Planet exhibit does a great job of explaining 4 billion years of the Earth’s history - the beginning of life, the rise of dinosaurs and the emergence of mammals. We’ll definitely be back again to see everything that we missed on this visit.
Everything is accessible. Enter the building at the east entrance.
RV parking is available at the Adler Planetarium Lot but it’s very expensive. We walked/rolled along the Lakefront Trail from our overnight spot at the McCormick Place Truck Marshalling Yard. Museum
