Clue in for a night at the Field Museum! At this after hours event, super sleuths of all ages will dress in their best disguises and explore the exhibits for clues in order to solve a “who-done-it?” mystery. The plot thickens in the heart of the museum as guests will also learn about how specimens from our collections give us clues about the past from our perceptive team of scientists. Aspiring science detectives can even walk the secret passages of the building with the purchase of an exclusive Collections Tour.

This event is for all ages; the PlayLab will be open with activities for little ones and there will be escape room style challenges for all ages. 

All sales are final.
