  1. I like the mummies and Egypt exhibit at Field Museum. Also, the dinosaur bones – particularly Sue at the front entrance – are great. The gemstones are pretty impressive too. The Shedd Aquarium nearby is also a fun place to bring children.

  2. Its the song at the end where the kid is on the dinosaur and the dad asks if he wants to go home cause its late and the kid replies" na" . THE SONG that plays what is it called 😉
