I've always been a bit of a history nerd, as well as liking to learn new things, so the Field Museum is a place in which I fit right in! The museum is in an older building, so there are a few issues with space and accessibility, but the exhibits themselves are pretty good. I love the Egypt and Native American exhibits, and of course, the famous Sue dinosaur! I remember when they first found the skeleton and when they brought it to the museum, and have always been fascinated with it since then. I also like how this museum, in addition to several others in Chicago, have free admission days for Illinois residents, which is a bonus.

The audience at the Disability Awareness Training at the Field Museum were enthusiastic and very engaged in the material! I enjoyed the training! The audience was very friendly and willing to talk with players after the training and volunteer during the training.

I came to this museum a couple days ago for an event, and had tons of fun. As always, the event was presented very well and the people were great. This was my first time at the museum since sixth grade.

I like the Field Museum alot because there are many interesting things to see. The people that work there are very helpful with assistance if needed. I have been to the Field Museum before and i really enjoy looking at the different stuff they have there.. One of my favorite things to see is the mummy excibit cause you get to see a real sarcophagus which is a really cool thing to see.

I've taken the CTA train downtown independently and have visited the Field Museum. The Field Museum is a great place to visit in Chicago. They've got excellent customer service. When I was recently at the Field Museum with a friend, it was one of their free days. I walked in and the employees at the desk were helpful and friendly. They gave me a map, and they were helpful when I wasn't sure where an exhibit was. The Field Museum has a lot of great exhibits. They also have two great restaurants there. When my friend and I ordered food from Corner Bakery and McDonald's, they had excellent customer service. Besides food, we looked at a lot of exhibits, like Ancient Egypt, the Whale Exhibit, and all the statues of animals. After we saw enough, we took the train home. The Field Museum is a great museum to go to.
