If you've enjoyed following along with the team's expedition and would like to learn more about birds and their evolution, The Field Museum's conservation work, and more, consider planning a visit to some of the following exhibitions at The Field Museum.
Ronald and Christina Gidwitz Hall of Birds
Fans of the Museum's famous bird hall will be excited to learn that it's been renovated. Now named the Ronald and Christina Gidwitz Hall of Birds, the new space allows visitors to hear actual bird calls, explore species via iPads, watch videos, and simply enjoy the diversity and majesty of birds.
DNA Discovery Center
Discover what DNA is, how it works, and what it can tell us about all life on Earth—including birds. At the Daniel F. and Ada L. Rice DNA Discovery Center, you can experience the Field Museum's Pritzker Laboratory, a working state-of-the-art DNA research facility where dozens of scientists are currently analyzing the DNA of thousands of different species—from the fungi of Antarctica to the ants of Australia.
How did life on Earth—including birds—evolve? Explore the awe-inspiring process, and the science that reveals it, in a spectacular journey through four billion years of life on Earth. Unique fossils, animated videos, hands-on interactive displays, and recreated sea- and landscapes help tell the compelling story of our Evolving Planet.
