Science at The Field

identification Day

Attend The Field Museum's first Identification Day to have real scientists attempt to identify your discoveries, as well as get a look at specimens from the Museum's collections. Scientists from Botany, Geology, and Zoology will be examining your sea shells, plants, feathers, and rocks in order to help you gain a better understanding of what you've discovered. Don't have anything to bring in? You can still explore some of the specimens from behind the scenes that our scientists will have on display.
