Features: If you plan on going several of Chicago's famous museums during your vacation, then the Chicago Explorer Pass is the way to do it! These Chicago discount cards will get you up to 40% off and let you skip the line at up to 5 of Chicago's top attractions including the Museum of Science and Industry, Field Museum, Art Institute and Adler Planetarium.

Why We Go: We love saving money, but who doesn't? So when we want to hit up multiple museums, we take advantage of this Chicago attraction discount card to help us keep as much cash in our wallet as possible.

  • Museum of Science and Industry: The Museum of Science and Industry is a must-see tourist attraction in Chicago. It's a hands on museum where you learn by actually touching and testing out the exhibits. The museum includes a real life size tornado, an egg hatchery and a mine shaft.
  • Field Museum: Resting right in the middle of Museum Campus, the Field Museum is an enormous museum of natural history. As you walk in you're greeted by Sue, the largest, most completely assembled skeleton of a T. Rex in the world!
  • Art Institute: The Art Institute is one of the best art museums in the nation. Prepare at least a four hour visit if you wanna see everything, because there's a lot to see! Be sure you don't miss the famous American Gothic painting. The original is on display here!

Inside Knowledge: You can print your Chicago attraction discount card from your home computer, making it easier then ever to receive discounts and savings. Just flash your pass when you get to the museum and get right in the door - no waiting in line!

Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do Take Your Time: Unlike other Chicago discount cards, the Chicago Explorer Pass is good for 30 days, so that you don't feel pressured to visit all the attractions in one weekend.
  • Do Take a Water Taxi: One of the best and most scenic ways to arrive on Museum Campus -- home of the Field Museum and Adler Planetarium -- is to take a water taxi from Navy Pier. This will give amazing views of the Chicago skyline while boating through Lake Michigan. Plus, it's even cheaper than taking a cab.
  • Don't Miss Anything: The best way to get the most out of your Chicago discount cards is to see all four of the museums. Considering they're all completely different and world famous, this should be pretty easy to accomplish.
  • Don't Forget a Camera: While using your Chicago discount cards, you'll see some of the most impressive museum exhibits in the world, so be sure to bring along your trusty camera for excellent family photo ops.
