65th Annual Members' Nights

Thursday, May 19 and Friday, May 20, 2016, 5-10pm
RSVP today!

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 area!

This is your ONLY 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!

All exhibitions will be open. There will be activities for both kids and adults. Space is highly limited and reservations are required. RSVP today!

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.

Members' Nights Sponsor: Charles Schwab
