66th Annual Members' Nights

Date TBD

How are specimens cleaned and prepared? How are exhibitions designed? Have you seen our live insects collection? Did you know 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 when 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!

Check back in January for more details, including the dates for the 66th Annual Members' Nights.

Find your photos! Did you attend the 65th Annual Members' Nights? If you took pictures at any of our photo booths, you can find them here:
