Meet a Scientist

Staff member shows specimens to visitors.

Meet Marty Pryzdia as he shows off the amazing invertebrate collection! See one-of-a-kind specimens and learn how they help us make new discoveries.

Free with Basic admission. On Fridays from 11am to 1pm, find scientific staff in our new Grainger Science Hub! They'll share wonders from our collections and highlights of their research. Enter from Stanley Field Hall to hear about their work, see real artifacts and specimens from the approximately 30 million objects in The Field Museum's collections, and experience the Museum in new ways. Topics range from birds to insects, from mammals to plants, from pottery to spear points, and more!
