Chicago: The Field Museum

Founded on collections originally assembled for the World’s Columbian Exposition of 1893, The Field Museum now houses 24 million anthropologial, botanical, geological and zoological specimens and objects from around the world. These collections–from narwhal horns to treeferns, fish fossils, and Chinese rubbings–help us understand and conserve the world’s biological and cultural diversity. The Museum’s research, collection, and conservation areas are home to dozens of scientists and students studying, managing, and telling the world about this incredible library of diversity.
