What people are saying:

The Field Museum of Natural History (English: Field Museum of Natural History), founded in 1906, this huge world-class museum sets aside more than 6 hectares for exhibitions and explores the culture and environment around the world. The Field Museum collects There are more than 21 million specimens, both educational exhibitions, academic research and collection protection functions, from beetles, mummies to apes specimens, as well as gems and minerals. I first saw Sippa before the visit. I held him for a photo when I was born in Morocco 7 years ago. When I met again 7 years later, he was already a handsome child. His parents were Thai diplomats who were sent to Rabat 7 years ago and are now sent to Chicago. This is another reason for this trip to Chicago. In the prehistoric museum, I saw jellyfish fossils from Morocco tens of millions of years ago, which also confirmed the argument that the Sahara was an underwater world tens of millions of years ago. During the visit, we were all puzzled by the scene of a researcher sitting still, thinking it was a model. After more than 10 minutes, he stood up like we showed the fossil samples he drilled and washed before realizing that he was a real person and admiring his dedication. Among the many dinosaur displays here, one of the most famous is Sue-苏. Su (English: Sue) is the largest and best-preserved fossil of Tyrannosaurus Rex in the world. It was discovered by American paleontologist Sue Hendrickson in western South Dakota on August 12, 1990, and was named after her. The Chicago Field Museum of Natural History was purchased for $8.36 million in an auction hosted by the Sotheby Auction House in New York on October 4, 1997. This is the highest auction price for paleontological fossils so far. Su has since become the permanent collection of the Field Museum-the treasure of the town hall. The museum currently exhibits both "Tang Zhongying Chinese Cultural Relics" and "Egyptian Mummies". The mummy exhibition is the most complete exhibition of Egyptian mummy history I have ever seen. Have a comprehensive understanding of the social background, rituals, methods and specific production process of the mummy. Not only did it broaden its horizons, but it also increased knowledge. The aerial botanical garden in the museum hall. When you need to spray water, you can drop the chain to send the plants to the ground to spray water, and then send them to the air after the end.
