What to See

One of the Field Museum's biggest drawcards is SUE, the world's largest, most complete T. rex skeleton. She shares her home in the newly renovated Dinosaur Hall with the skeletons of other prehistoric megafauna, including woolly mammoths, giant sloths and other dinosaurs. Beyond the Dinosaur Hall, you can discover Inside Ancient Egypt, where 23 Egyptian mummies and 5,000-year-old hieroglyphics reside. In Underground Adventure, visitors “shrink” to 1/100th of their natural size to explore a subterranean world. Be dazzled in our new Hall of Gems. Marvel at one of the largest collections of Chinese jade in North America in our Hall of Jades. Journey through 13,000 years of history in the Ancient Americas, from the Ice Age mammoth hunters to the temples of the Incas and Aztecs.
