N. W. Harris Learning Collection

ATTENTION: The Learning Collection will be CLOSED this summer. Our last open day is Saturday, May 30. All materials must be returned by May 30. We will reopen September 1 for the 2015-2016 school year.

Thanks for a fantastic school year in the N. W. Harris Learning Collection! We have enjoyed working with all of you to promote object-based learning in the classroom. Have a wonderful summer!

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 the chance to take the Museum's collection to their classroom or home.  Borrow these specimens and artifacts and when you return your borrowed treasures, peruse our 100-year-old Learning Collection and take something new!

With over 400 unique Exhibit Cases (mini-dioramas) and 70 Experience Boxes (hands-on kits) your options are endless! 

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