Museum complex on the shores of Lake Michigan, which houses collections dedicated to the natural history of the planet.

One of the great natural history museums of the world. My favorite exhibit is the Evolving Planet, an incredible journey through time. It’s sobering to walk through the five global extinction events, and then to come to the end of the exhibit and rea.. Read more »


I have to give the dinosaur exhibit top marks. The recreations are spectacular, the fossils great and the whole exhibit is designed to view and theorize about what once was. Despite offering answers, it also poses many questions. Many exhibits, and a.. Read more »

This museum has a lot of interesting stuff, plenty to see and do, and a well-rounded collection that the whole family can enjoy. The only flaw that I see is that some aspects of the museum are a little bit dated, and it is not very clean. They also d.. Read more »


Now it is a fun place with cool and interesting exhibits, but my latest experience made me not want to go back. There is an eating area in the basement, and it is extremely dirty. I lost my appetite. That, said they make it impossible for you to brin.. Read more »
