I know Chicago is a bit of a trek, but if you find yourself up on the shores of Lake Michigan sometime this month, carve out some time to visit the Field Museum. The Field Museum regularly holds free admission days, and has set aside the entire month of February for Illinois residents to come visit their general admission exhibits.

The general admission exhibits the free admission gets you into include Evolving Planet, Inside Ancient Egypt, Ronald & Christina Gidwitz Hall of Birds, the DNA Discovery Center and more. For a full list, visit their website.
