About this event

Experience the Field Museum’s newest temporary exhibition at this after-hours event.

In Unseen Oceans, explore the mysterious, rarely-seen world hidden beneath the ocean’s surface. Pilot through the depths in an interactive submersible game, discover glow-in-the-dark sea creatures and get up close to live ocean animals.
