Meet a Scientist

Meet a Scientist
Fridays, 10am to 12pm
Stanley Field Hall / East Entrance (locations vary)

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 from the over 24 million objects not on display at The Field, 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!
