We chose the 3-attraction ticket and went to the Field Museum, the Museum of Science & Industry and took the Shoreline Architecture River Cruise. Our family enjoyed all three. Being this was our first time to purchase a Go Chicago pass, we were thrilled that entry into all of these places worked flawlessly.

My family and I had a great time at the museum. We learned a lot about Chicago and the staff was extremely friendly and professional. It was a blast.

Lived in Chicago my whole life and should've visited sooner!! Such a beautiful and wonderful museum! We're going back for sure. :)
