Now in its 125th year, the Field Museum is a forward-thinking scientific leader on a mission to explore, protect, and celebrate nature and culture.
We take part in groundbreaking research all over the world while maintaining one of the world’s largest collections of artifacts and specimens, used to inspire discovery, spark public engagement with science, and uncover solutions for a better world.

Every object has a tale to tell and we have more than 24 million of them in our collections. Each Friday we turn the spotlight onto the cases, cabinets and shelves behind the scenes and let our staff reveal the hidden stories from The Field Museum.
