Stumble on Discovery Squad carts between 10am and 3pm, every day in Stanley Field Hall.

Itching for a little more exploration during your day at the museum? You’re in luck. Less than one percent of the Museum’s collection is actually on display, but if you hang with the Discovery Squad you’ll see some hidden gems (and other cool specimens). Learn what our collection can teach us about the world around us.

From wild creatures to rocks and minerals, let our Discovery Squad educators help you explore something new.
