Founders' Room

Go back in time and experience The Field Museum’s elegant Founders' Room. The Founders' Room served as the office of Stanley Field, President of the museum from 1908-1964.

Dedicated to the generous donors of The Field Museum and previously used only for internal events, The Founders’ Room boasts priceless artifacts, a floor-to-ceiling decorative fireplace, large crystal chandelier, and beautiful South and East facing views. 

The intimate space includes a reception area, private bathrooms, and a kitchen. Full dinner seating is available for 100 or a reception for up to 125.
