The museum circuit

For Christmas, we received Chicago City Passes, tickets which provide entrance to five of the city's best tourist attractions: Field Museum, John Hancock Observatory, Museum of Science and Industry, Adler Planetarium, and Shedd Aquarium. Living in the city, we sometimes take these places for granted and don't make a point of visiting them. So the City Pass gave us a good excuse to go back and catch up on all the things we have been missing.

Here are some of the highlights:

Sue, the T-Rex, is one of the most popular - and impressive - attractions at the Field Museum.

A clear night gave us great views of the city from John Hancock. The City Pass included an interesting audio tour.

The Museum of Science and Industry's transportation exhibit is impressive - and we also got to see a 3-D movie!

Far Out Fridays at the Adler allow visitors to stay late, take part in special events - and look through telescopes!

Lizards and the Komodo King is Shedd Aquarium's current special exhibit.
