Science at The Field

Meet a Scientist

Every Friday from 10am to noon, scientists will be out in the Museum sharing the wonders of our collections and highlights of their research. Hear about their work, see real artifacts and specimens, and experience the Museum like never before. Topics will range from birds to insects, from mammals to plants, from pottery to spear points, and more!

Discovery Squad

On Fridays through December 26, from 10am - 2pm, meet the Field Museum Discovery Squad! Get a peek behind the curtain and learn the inside scoop about the collections in our vaults and what it takes to run a world-class Museum - right from the source. Our Discovery Squad members work in all areas of The Field: they're scientists, exhibition designers, marketing gurus and much more. They'll be out in Stanley Field Hall and select exhibitions every Friday through December to share stories about the work they do, show you real objects from our collection, and answer your questions.
