The Field Museum is probably THE museum to visit in Chicago. When I was young I visited the field museum and all I remember was that it had EVERYTHING. As an adult, it was all new. In addition to being the Home Museum for Sue the T-Rex, the Field had a very impressive exhibit on American Indian Culture (North, Central, AND South American) and an expansive Egyptian exhibit complete with Mummies. Luckily the museum is very large and can accomodate big crowds better than many museums of Natural History that are smaller.

You can expect large crowds because of it's popularity but the Field Museum is not to be missed. Check into a combo ticket if you are planning on visiting several museums over the course of your stay and you'll save some green.
