Free Days Return to Field Museum
Free Days Return to Field Museum in 2018
for Illinois Residents
Museum Offers Free Basic Admission for Free February and other dates
The Field Museum announced its “Free Days” will be back in 2018! This
includes an entire month of free basic admission for Illinois residents
during Free February, plus additional specific free days in January and
June. Free Days are about an 80-dollar savings for a family of four, making
them the perfect opportunity to take advantage of the many adventures
at the Museum—from exploring the pyramids of ancient Egypt to witnessing
the history of life on earth, and, of course, plenty of dinosaurs. Free
Days this year fall during a time of big change coming to the Museum,
including the introduction of the largest dinosaur ever found, the Titanosaur.
Free February and January Free Days line up with SUE’s updates as part
of the transformation of Stanley Field Hall in 2018. SUE will soon be
on vacation in order to receive scientific improvements and undergo conservation
work, so Free Days during the winter of 2018 are great opportunities to
get a last-minute selfie or group photo with SUE in Stanley Field Hall
before the skeletal celebrity goes on hiatus, returning in 2019 to a new
home in the Field’s permanent exhibition Evolving Planet.
