The Field Museum offers over 12,000 education programs annually to more than 350,000 participants. These include adult, youth, and family programs, both on and off-site.

Crown Family PlayLab:
The Field Museum’s Playlab is an early childhood learning center for children ages 2-6 focused on helping our youngest visitors develop a lifelong love for science and the natural world. Themed learning areas throughout the PlayLab – from dinosaurs to music and archeology- create experiences that help children explore the world around them.

Dozin’ with the Dinos:
These educational overnights at the Museum provide children (ages 6-12) and their chaperones with an opportunity to explore the Museum after hours with special access to the Museum’s exhibitions, collections, and scientists.
