About Field Museum

Our rooms tell the stories of civilizations. Imagine what they could say about your event. Guests at the Field Museum will discover artifacts from civilizations past, explore almost every corner of the globe, learn about new scientific discoveries, and walk away inspired! Nowhere else can guests dine under the largest dinosaur ever discovered! In spring, we unveiled a cast of a 122-foot-long titanosaur in our Stanley Field Hall! The titanosaur is joined by life-size replicas of giant flying reptiles and hanging gardens inspired by plants that lived alongside dinosaurs, like ferns, cycads, and arums.

Recommendations

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.
