Choose a venue with a little history. Whether you’re throwing a black-tie celebration or planning a casual corporate outing, choose the Field Museum for an unforgettable event at a world-class Chicago venue. From the iconic Stanley Field Hall to intimate atrium and theater spaces, we have a place to suit groups of any size and occasions of every type. 

Support the Field Museum and the planet. Every event hosted at the Field Museum supports our work: fueling a journey of discovery across time to enable solutions for a brighter future rich in nature and culture. We care deeply about our impact on the planet—our building is LEED Gold certified—and are eager to work alongside our event hosts to pursue their conservation goals, too. The Field Museum and our vendors offer many ways for event organizers to dial up their own sustainability efforts through eco-friendly bar packages, “water bottle free” events, floral arrangements using native plants, and more. Choose your desired impact—even a zero waste event—and we and our vendors will help you make it happen.
