Crown Family PlayLab - Art and Science Spotlight

Understanding Extinction Patterns: Young naturalists and their families are invited to the Crown Family PlayLab to learn about the conservation of Monarch butterflies and other locally endangered species. Field Museum scientists will be on hand to display butterfly and bird specimens from our collections. Learn why migration patterns are so important to the success of ecosystems and their impact on extinction. Later, join us in the art studio for butterfly creations and stick around for a Monarch butterfly release outside our Museum doors!

Question Club

Do you find yourself interrupting casual conversations to say “actually…” and “did you know?” Are you full of fun science facts that no one else seems to know? Put that skill to use at The Field Museum’s newest monthly event! Question Club promises a rollicking Wednesday night pub quiz—with a bonus scientific twist.

Identification Day

Have you been hiking and found a plant you couldn’t identify? Have you snapped a photo of an animal on vacation, and now can’t figure out what it is? Find something you think is a fossil but aren’t quite sure? 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.
