    One of the best collections of egyptology in the world, comparable to the British Museum or the Pergamon's collection, in terms of significance.

    One of my all time favorite museums. The collection contains many ancient objects used in daily life. Just imagine 5000 years from now somebody will be viewing 20th century personal items.

    The majority of the artifacts in the Oriental Institute Museum were found as a result of archaeological excavations sponsored by the Oriental Institute.

    I liked this museum better than the Field Museum! I studied ancient history in college and this little museum touched on all the near eastern civilizations. Best part is the GIANT lamassu!!!
