Meet a Scientist

Staff member shows specimens to visitors.

Discover the amazing birds of Chicago - not just pigeons! Talk to the scientists and explore specimens from Field Museum collections. Pick up your own guide, so you can start looking for these birds in the wild!

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!
