More than 150 scientists and researchers travel to the far corners of the world in search of new discoveries and clues to what life was like hundreds, thousands, and millions of years ago. Every day we find new evidence of just how interconnected our world is, and working to build stronger communities to help preserve the planet for all the diverse life that makes Earth home. Science is for everyone. The Field Museum can’t wait to share it with you. Chicago is the city of big shoulders and you’ll need a big appetite for our next stop. Embark on a CHICAGO PIZZA TOUR!!!

Our last stop of the day, that’s if you can still move, is SKYDECK CHICAGO.
Step outside the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere. At 1,353 feet in the air, the Ledge’s glass boxes extend out 4.3 feet from the Skydeck. Willis Tower (formerly known as the Sears Tower) is a 110 story building in the heart of Chicago’s downtown. Willis Tower is not only one of the tallest buildings in the world, it is also a magnificent icon, impossible to miss within Chicago’s skyline. Skydeck Chicago is the observation deck on the 103rd floor of the building. On a clear day, you can see over 50 miles in each direction and see four states. The elevators within the building are among some of the fastest in the world, operating as fast as 1,600 feet per minute. With glass on the ceiling, floor, and all sides, it is truly, an unforgettable experience.

CHICAGO GANGSTERS AND GHOSTS TOUR. This unique walking tour combines the ghost stories, gangster tales, and history of Chicago’s past in one comprehensive Chicago tour. You can’t truly experience the city without immersing yourself in the criminal history of the gangster town. What better way to learn about the city’s shady past than by tracing the footsteps of its most notorious gangsters on a Chicago Walking Tour? Get transported back in time to experience Chicago as it was lived by locals during the bootlegging gangster reign of the 1920s. Voted as one of the best Chicago tours available to tourists today.
We will have time for a quick photo op at Chicago’s iconic art piece; CLOUD GATE, better known as the CHICAGO BEAN. This 110-ton elliptical sculpture is forged of a seamless series of highly polished stainless steel plates, which reflect Chicago’s famous skyline and the clouds above. A 12-foot-high arch provides a "gate" to the concave chamber beneath the sculpture, inviting visitors to touch its mirror-like surface and see their image reflected back from a variety of perspectives. Inspired by liquid mercury, the sculpture is among the largest of its kind in the world, measuring 66-feet long by 33-feet high.
Dinner at TOMMY GUN’S GARAGE. Tommy Gun’s is an audience interactive speakeasy that offers a musical comedy review with da gangster, da flappers and YOU!!! After a delicious sit-down dinner, join Vito, Gloves, da gangsters and da flappers for non-stop comedy and dangerous fun. You will be transported back to the 1920s, by da boss's 1928 Model A Ford, Roaring Twenties music, memorabilia and pictures of da gangsters and coppers of da time. The mugs and molls dance and sing the Charleston and other musical selections from 1920’s composers like Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Fats Waller and Duke Ellington. Be ready to hide your hooch (alcohol) cause we could get raided by da cops at any time. Be careful, you could get pulled up on stage to perform a sobriety test given by Officer Murphy!
