All teens must enter through the West Doors of the Museum and must present a school ID, or valid state ID. Pre-registration is not required. Teens that arrive after 5pm will not be able to gain entry to the building.  Contact us at with questions.

Gardening with Arduino
Dates: Thursday, September 18 – October 23
Time: 4-6pm
In a connected world, even gardens are part of the Internet of Things. Come learn the basics of urban gardening and how electronics can give us better insights into homegrown food at The Field Museum.

Exploring Cultures through Movie Making
Dates: Wednesdays, October 22 – November 19
Time: 4-6pm

Explore cultures and examine how they are represented (or misrepresented) in popular culture, through movie making! We’ll begin our exploration in Vodou and will look at how the Museum works with communities to tell their story. Teens will have the opportunity to create a movie about cultural representation in the modern day
