Revised mask policy

As of June 11, 2021, Chicago is in phase 5 of its reopening plan. We’re thrilled to welcome you back with even more access to the Field Museum. Masks are optional for guests who are fully vaccinated. This change aligns with the City of Chicago’s newly updated guidelines. Because staff and visitor safety remains a top priority, visitors who are not fully vaccinated should continue to wear masks in accordance with CDC, Illinois, and Chicago guidelines. We encourage physical distancing, and we will continue to clean and disinfect to the highest standards.
