  • Overview

Hosting your event at The Field Museum is the way to be environmentally responsible. The revenue generated by your special event supports lasting conservation at local, national, and international levels.  To learn more about our green practices, please visit our website by clicking here.

At The Field Museum you can add interactive Pop-Up Curiosities stations to engage your guests with our collections.  Our Pop-Up Curiosities includes Field Museum scientists on site at your event displaying artifacts from behind the scenes (topics are Food & Beverage, Glow in the Dark, and Sex). This is a way to engage guests with remarkable specimens and artifacts. These objects are not on display for the general public, and your guests can inspect some of the rarest artifacts in The Field Museum's collections. Or you can incorporate Tooth & Claw, a beer brewed exclusively for and available at The Field Museum by Off Color Brewing. To learn more about our various event experiences, please visit our website by clicking here.

From our many exhibitions to our green initiatives, our venue is truly unique.
