My Final Thoughts on the Chicago Field Museum
This video is my 22nd and FINAL installment of the Field Museum in Chicago. Here I give my final thought, which is that even though I found myself worn out and overwhelmed by the sheer amount of information on display, this ultimately means that the museum has something for all interests. No matter if you're into different animals, cultures, plants, artifacts, or anything relating to natural history, you will stumble upon something you're into and be able to learn about it in the process.

What I DIDN'T LIKE About the Field Museum in Chicago
This video is my 21st installment of the Field Museum in Chicago. Here I wrap up my time at this great museum by discussing what I didn't like. For me personally, I was a bit overwhelmed and felt a bit of information overload after spending 3 or 4 hours here. It's great to know that you can read about almost every piece at the museum, but I got fatigued very quickly after checking out countless things on display. A huge disclaimer is that although I occasionally enjoy museums, I am by no means a museum fanatic so I have limited energy and interest.
Feeling White Guilt While Walking Around the Hispanic Historical Exhibits at the Field Museum
