Take The Field Museum with you!

 

From a skunk specimen to SUE’s tooth to a ceremonial mask from Cameroon, the N. W. Harris Learning Collection at The Field Museum gives educators and parents a chance to take the Museum's collection to their classroom or home.  Borrow these specimens,  artifacts, and related curricular materials for up to one month, and when you return your borrowed treasures, peruse the over 100-year-old Learning Collection to take something new.

 

With over 400 unique exhibit cases (mini-dioramas) and 60 experience boxes (hands-on kits), your options are endless! 

 

Materials from the N. W. Harris Learning Collection at The Field Museum provide a unique and exciting way to engage students in scientific practices, develop critical thinking skills, and pique curiosity about Earth’s natural and cultural diversity.
