Members' Nights

About this recurring event

Experience the museum like a VIP at Members' Nights.

On these special evenings, Field Museum members get unprecedented access to areas normally off-limits to the public and a peek at rarely seen items from our vast collection.

You can also learn about what’s happening around the museum by chatting with staff members including scientists, curators, and exhibition designers. All exhibitions are open for members to explore, as well as hands-on stations and behind-the-scenes areas for both kids and adults.

This event is free for Museum members. Register online, at the membership desk, or over the phone at 312.665.7705.

Attendees enjoy behind-the-scenes perks during Members’ Nights, including a “backstage pass” to our Collections Resource Center.
