Opening the Vaults: Wonders of the 1983 World’s Fair
Featuring rare artifacts from the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition, The Field Museum celebrates an epic event in Chicago’s history 120 years later.
The Field Museum– through September 7, 2014
Excerpt from website: The Field Columbian Museum opened to the public on June 2, 1894. Originally conceived as a commemoration of the Fair, not as a natural history institution, it became a source of civic pride. Over time, certain departments were eliminated, such as Industrial Arts, forming the natural history museum you know today.
Tickets: And all the permanent exhibitions! $31 for adults, $21 for children (3-11), and $25 for students and seniors (65+) Read more on the website…
