Excellent aquarium if you have a love for marine life! During the summer Wednesday nights feature live Jazz music on the patio where you can enjoy a cocktail & the beautiful Chicago skyline for only $24.95 a person.

“Chicago has world class museums, and Field is my personal favorite. The building is beautiful, the setting is impeccable, and the exhibits are informative as you'd expect. They have things to entertain children as well, like the IMAX. If you're into museums, put this one on your list. ”
