The Field Museum of Natural History owes its existence to the World’s Fair that was held in Chicago in 1893.Originally designed as way to showcase exhibits from the Fair, the museum quickly evolved into a collection of natural history artifacts and exhibitions.The collection was moved to its current location in Grant Park in 1921 and is part of the Museum Campus.Exhibits range from a taxidermy collection of large animals such as African elephants to an extensive collection of Native American artifacts.A 12 meter (40 foot) long Tyrannosaurus skeleton is the most popular exhibit out of the museum’s millions of specimens, and many visitors wouldn’t feel that their trip to Chi town is complete without viewing the dinosaur known as “Sue.”
The Museum also offers a broad range of programs such as festivals, tours, workshops, performances, lectures, and courses for preschool through adult audiences.
