Field Museum scientists discover new species, do innovative research, and solve scientific mysteries. Now, the Grainger Science Hub is bringing our collections out from behind closed doors. We're pulling the best of what we're preparing, analyzing, and discovering out for you to see and experience every day at The Field Museum.
Get a close look at some of the coolest things in our collections, talk with the scientists who study them, and engage with educators to learn even more. You can participate in hands-on activities and be among the first to know about breaking science stories. As an extension of the Science Hub, interactive carts in Stanley Field Hall offer even more ways to explore the collections and make new discoveries for yourself.
The Science Hub is generally open daily from 10am to 3pm. On Fridays, visit the Science Hub for Meet a Scientist from 11am to 1pm, as scientists share real artifacts and specimens from the collections.
Each experience is one-of-a-kind, and we're regularly sharing new stories about our scientific work and its impact on the world. Here are the current exhibits to explore at the Science Hub:
Explore how people use plants in different ways, from clothing to medicine to household items, and uncover the history behind some of the first items to become a part of the Museum's collection.
