Chicago Musuem Campus

Some of Chicago’s most notable attractions sit within the Museum Campus, a 57-acre park along Lake Michigan. The Field Museum of Natural History and the Shedd Aquarium are a short walk from Soldier Field, home to the Bears and Chicago Fire soccer team. Situated on a man-made peninsula, the campus includes the Adler Planetarium, which lets visitors look back at the city skyline or up at the stars. But not for several weeks. All of the museums will be closed at least until early April.
