Program Description:

The Museum's collections are the essence of the Museum. They trace the history of the earth from its formation through the evolutionary waves of plant and animal life to the development and expression of diverse human cultures. The Museum also offers a broad range of programs such as festivals, tours, workshops, performances, lectures, and courses for preschool through adult audiences. In addition, the Museum operates a number of educational programs geared to Chicago-area schools. Our permanent exhibits include: Sue, the largest, most complete, and best preserved T-Rex fossil yet discovered; the Grainger Hall of Gems and the Hall of Jades; Moving Earth. 2005 Temporary Exhibits included: Jacqueline Kennedy: The White House Years; Macchu Picchu: Unveiling the Mystery of the Incas; and Pompeii: Stories from an Eruption.

Program Long-Term Success:

Field Museum Researcher Steven Goodman was named a 2005 MacArthur Fellow. A researcher at Chicago's Field Museum of Natural History, Goodman spends most of his time in Madagascar where he works with international conservation groups and local biologists to record and preserve ecosystems increasingly threatened by rapid deforestation and population growth. He also founded and leads the Ecological Training Program (ETP) that mentors, trains, and prepares local Malagasy biologists in pressing conservation issues, a model that is being replicated elsewhere in ecologically threatened regions in Africa and around the world.
