Field Museum of Natural History

The Field Museum of Natural History is located in Chicago, Illinois. It sits on Lake Shore Drive next to Lake Michigan, part of a scenic complex known as the Museum Campus Chicago. The museum collections contain over 21 million specimens, of which only a small portion are ever on display.

Some prized exhibits in The Field Museum include:

- Sue, the largest and most complete Tyrannosaurus currently known.

- A comprehensive set of human cultural anthropology exhibits, including artifacts from ancient Egypt, the Pacific Northwest, the Pacific Islands, and Tibet.

- A large and diverse taxidermy collection, featuring many large animals, including two prized African elephants and the infamous Lions of Tsavo, featured in the 1996 movie The Ghost and the Darkness.

- A large collection of dinosaurs in the Evolving Planet exhibit (formerly Life Over Time).

- A large collection of Native American artifacts. The main exhibit with these artifacts reopened as Ancient Americas in March 2007.
