How are specimens cleaned and prepared? How are exhibitions designed? Have you seen our live insects collection? Less than 1% of our collection of 30 million specimens and artifacts is on public display, the rest is stored in vast behind-the-scenes areas! 

This is the one time each year where Field Museum members have a chance to explore areas normally off limits to the public, talk to scientists and curators, and see parts of our collection that are not on display. There's a whole world behind our public areas that you don't want to miss! We can't wait to see you—share your experience with #MembersNight66.

All exhibitions will be open, and there will be activities for both kids and adults. Get a glimpse of what the evenings are like with a video from our 2015 Members' Nights. Space is limited and reservations are required.

Already a member? Check you mailbox in March for your invitation.

The Museum will close to the public at 4:00pm and reopen at 5:00pm for this event. Any photos or videos taken by Field Museum staff during Members' Nights may be used to promote the Museum.
