A 40.5-foot T. rex leans forward as if ready to pounce... 58 teeth and a killer smile. Luckily for Field Museum visitors, the ancient skeleton hasn't moved on its own in 67 million years. The world's largest and most complete T. Rex ever found is just one of The Field's extraordinary specimens on display.
Chicago's Field Museum, one of the world's great museums, is a treasure trove of natural history for you to uncover. Built to house the biological and anthropological collections assembled for the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893, the museum's collection has grown to an astounding 24 million objects ranging from ancient mummies to exquisite gemstones, to endangered plants and animals.
Home to renowned masterpieces — in addition to the third largest collection of art in the country and new groundbreaking exhibits each year — you'll find yourself steeped in art history and education with an event calendar filled with hundreds of insightful gallery talks, films, lectures and performances.
