The free admission to the Chicago attractions are part of 13 museums in 6 cities nationwide for users of the travel app, which uses a phone’s location to alert explorers of notable places and attractions nearby.

Basic admission for The Field Museum is $15, $12 for the Adler Planetarium and a $12 suggestion general admission at the Chicago MCA.
