THE FIELD MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY

Data Center Description
The Field Museum was founded to house the biological and anthropological
collections assembled for the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893. These
objects form the core of the Museum's collections which have grown through
world-wide expeditions, exchange, purchase, and gifts to more than twenty
million specimens. The collections form the foundation of the Museum's
exhibition, research and education programs, which are further informed by a
world-class natural history library of more than 250,000 volumes (Source: The
