Activity Overview

Chicago's Field Museum is one of the world's great museums of science, environment, and culture, a focus of public learning and scholarly research. It is a treasury of more than 20 million objects from ancient mummies to endangered plants and animals to Sue, the biggest and most complete T. rex ever found. Above all, The Field Museum is an unforgettable experience for visitors of all ages.

Named for its founding donor, department-store magnate Marshall Field, the Museum first opened its doors in 1894. Today it presides proudly over Chicago's lakefront Museum Campus, its majestic halls and acres of exhibitions welcoming visitors from around the world.
