Discover the gem of Chicago’s Museum Campus, featuring the most complete and best preserved T-Rex skeleton in the world, affectionately named SUE. This mammoth-sized (pun intended) natural history museum only has 1% of its constantly rotating collection on view at any given time, and with 480,000 square feet to show it, you never know what you’ll run into. Make sure to hit the real-live tomb full of ancient egyptian artifacts, and head back upstairs to the Hall of Gems for a look at some of the earth’s most precious stones. Feeling romantic? You can even reserve the room to propose to your significant other, but it’ll cost you: a cool $750 will get you a spot for your future fiance’s ring in the gem case, a personalized label, a sneaky Field employee to hide it from view until you’re ready, and champagne to toast when he or she (hopefully) says yes.
