Event Spaces

Guests at The Field Museum will discover artifacts from civilizations past, explore almost every corner of the globe, learn about new scientific discoveries, and walk away inspired!

Every space at The Field Museum reveals new knowledge. 

As you enter Stanley Field Hall, look down.  You are standing on 300 million year old fossilized limestone.  Look up— the museum’s skylights and solar roof panels contribute to museum conservation efforts to save energy. In Rice Hall, a nearby gallery, travel to Africa and stand toe-to-paw with the man-eating Lions of Tsavo.  Did you know the Lions of Tsavo were given to the museum in 1923 in the form of rugs?  Scientists skillfully mounted the skins into the lions you see today.
