The Field Museum in Chicago used to be called as the Columbian Museum of Chicago. This museum of natural history was built in 1893 and it features amazing displays of a variety of collections of mixed anthropological and biological items taken from the World Columbian Exposition. It was in 1905 when its name was changed to its current name as a tribute to Marshall Field who was the primary benefactor of the museum.

It houses a permanent collection that is made up of a total of 20 million artifacts along with specimens that cover almost every discipline of science like zoology, botany and geology. It is also where you can find the largest skeleton of a T-Rex in the world.
