Start with the Field Museum highlights
Start the day in our grand Stanley Field Hall with a docent-led tour of the Museum’s history and highlights. You’ll be introduced to treasures of the museum’s permanent collections, including the world-famous man-eating Lions of Tsavo and our fighting African elephants - part of the museum’s collection since the World’s Columbian Exposition in 1893.
Next tour zoology and limited access areas
Dig into one of the non-public collection’s areas with a museum curatorial staff member leading the way. We’ll take you through the Zoology and Entomology departments. Get up close with real live bugs during a special presentation from a Field Museum insect expert. Hold live insects, see a scorpion glow in the dark, observe Madagascar hissing cockroaches and more! Learn about the special worker bugs that clean animal skeletons and tour the non-public third floor of the museum where our scientific staff work every day!
There will be free time to tour the museum, on-your-own, and lunch will be included.
