The Field Museum In Chicago

The Field Museum is a gorgeous piece of architecture and definitely worth visiting.  First, I would suggest the CityPass cause you save a good amount of money on all the tourist attractions.  It’s like 50% off on all attractions if I remember correctly.  Also, the CityPASS is good for like 5-6 spots.  Find out more here.

Secondly, this place is filled with screaming kids like the Shedd Museum.  I should have expected it cause they’re right next to each other.  I left the Shedd and headed to the Field to get away from the screaming kids.  However, I started to hear the same screaming kids I knocked out with an elbow to the face at the Shedd.

The only thing different this time is he brought his whole hobbit crew and they’re all dressed up like the Goonies and carrying baseball bats.  We made eye contact in the main hall where the Mammoth and T-Rex was displayed.  Me and my buddy were on one side and they were on the other side.  We started to circle each other, cracking our knuckles, pointing and yelling obscenities.  It was like the parking lot scene in Michael Jackson’s Beat It video.  The only thing different is my buddy and I ran for our lives.

RUUUUN, STUPID!

Now, the exhibits are a little underwhelming cause of two things:

  1. I wasn’t allowed to touch any paintings, sculptures, old viking weapons or take pictures on any stuff animals.
  2. The exhibits didn’t come alive like the movie A Night at the Museum.

Apparently, they didn’t find it very funny when I whacked my buddy in the face with the T-Rex bone or when I started to dry hump the Willy Mammoth.  The Museum Director especially didn’t find it very funny when we both grabbed the viking artifacts and acted like we were in the movie Braveheart.  So what if we made a dent in the helmet and broke the wooden boat?!?  Have you never heard of Super Glue?  Some people don’t know how to have fun at all.  Geez… I swear.

Anyway, the Field Museum is pretty cool if you’re into history and sh*t.  I wouldn’t expect to have any fun here since they don’t let you play with the props.  I guess they never seen the meme about how growing up is a trap.  Can a guy pretend to be Peter Pan for one day?

Summary

The Field Museum is a building housing historical relics and a bunch of dead animals. It’s like the killing fields of a zoo next to the ancient Viking burial site. The major issue is you can’t touch or pet the animals cause their locked up behind glasses. Come on.. The animals are dead already and you still lock them up. Talk about adding insult to injury.
