Field Museum Free Days

Field Museum to Offer Free Basic Admission on Certain Days from July to December

The Field Museum’s ever-popular “Free Days” are back! Illinois residents will be treated to free basic admission on specific dates from July through December. Free days are an opportunity for visitors to discover – or rediscover – the wonders of the Museum, which contains one of the world’s most extensive natural history collections. From ancient mummies to millions-of-years-old dinosaurs, visit The Field Museum on their Free Days for an interactive journey of scientific discovery unlike any other.

With proof of residency, Illinois residents can enjoy free basic admission on specified free days from June through December. Visitors that want to upgrade to an All-Access Pass, which includes access to Specimens: Unlocking the Secrets of Life, TattooCyrus Tang Hall of China, and a 3D movie, can do so at a cost of 20 dollars for adults and 14 dollars for children ages 3-11. Seniors and students may purchase All-Access Passes for 17 dollars. Tickets to Jurassic World: The Exhibition will also be available for a cost of 15 dollars for adults and 10 dollars for children ages 3-11.

The Field Museum will host its fourth annual Identification Day on September 23 (a Free Day for Illinois residents) from 10am to 2pm. Bring in your fossils, seashells, rocks, meteorites, feathers, or photographs of mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, and insects to the Museum in order for world-renowned scientists to identify them!
