"Amazing Venue for Large Events", An Eventective User from Orlando, FL
While other venues may be cheaper, none offer the capacity, capability, and charm of the Field Museum. Whether it is featuring a movie for over 700 persons to hosting a charity gala, or even a large shareholder's meeting, the Field Museum is peerless in Chicago.
