The Best of Chicago: Museums and more


Enjoy Chicago  without having to line up for tickets with City Pass. You can get it online or at the first attraction you visit. Ideal for weekend travelers who wish to see the best of Chicago in a short span of time. For those who has a week to spare, there is no need to rush getting from one attraction to another as the tickets are valid for nine days from the date bought. It includes general admission plus a few perks to five wonderful Chicago attractions.


Shedd Aquarium

Enjoy VIP treatment to all the exhibits plus a 4-D experience in Fantasea. Experience an Amazon flooded forest in Amazon Rising, a 360-degree tour of the reef in Carribean Reef, meet dapper-looking penguins and lots of fishes in the Ocenarium and do a face-off with sharks with the Philippine coral reef in the background in Wild Reef. All of this is possible in Shedd Aquarium.




The Field Museum

Meet Sue, the largest, most complete, and best preserved Tyrannosaurus rex ever found. Get access to an Underground Adventure, and get to know the secrets of mummies.




Adler Planetarium

Be a star and travel across space. Watch not one but two theater shows. Ad Astra Per Aspera.. reach for the stars!



Museum of Science & Industry

Learn science hands-on from this expansive 14-acre museum. Fly an airplane – try a flight stimulator inside a real plane inside the museum. Experience the unique Omnimax show. There is always something new to see and do at the Museum of Science and Industry. After covering the whole museum, go outside. There is a beautiful pond with a great view.




Skydeck Chicago or John Hancock Observatory

Indulge in the picturesque Chicago skyline tour and free coffee in the John Hancock Observatory. You may choose between Skydeck Chicago and the John Hancock Observatory.



Surely, there is more to Chicago than these five attractions. But then again, it provides a great list to add to ones itinerary. Plus, you can always sight-see in between. City Pass tickets are available at $69 for adults and $59 for children ages 3 to 11. Verdict: Good deal. Check out the Chicago Skyline from different vantage points, here.
