During the summer, the Chicago Field Museum of Natural History featured an exhibit on Ghengis Khan as the main attraction. It had a lot of interesting history that was not well known as well as various replicas of historic artifacts from various collectors. The other featured exhibit we saw was the Extreme Mammals exhibit, which is still being shown until early 2013. Unfortunately, photos were not allowed in these exhibits. I was even asked to put my cell phone away when I was just checking the time! There are many exhibits at the museum though and it’s definitely worth checking out if you’re in the area. I would like to go back again, as I had a lot to see that day and wasn’t able to spend all day inside. Most of the photos I took were of the dinosaur skeletons, as I have had a long-time interest in dinosaurs and so they were definitely a main attraction for me. The other exhibit I particularly liked was the one on ancient Egypt. Photos were allowed, but due to the exhibit being dark, they weren’t worth taking. Enjoy what I do have below!
