The Field Museum offers many exciting educational programs and development opportunities to share with students and teachers.  Learn more about the resources available on The Field Museum website. 

One valuable resource is the H.W. Harris Learning Collection.  From a skunk specimen to SUE’s tooth to a ceremonial mask from Cameroon, the N. W. Harris Learning Collection at The Field Museum gives educators and parents the chance to take the Museum's collection to their classroom or home.  Borrow these specimens and artifacts and when you return your borrowed treasures, peruse our 100-year-old Learning Collection and take something new!

With over 400 unique Exhibit Cases (mini-dioramas) and 70 Experience Boxes (hands-on kits) your options are endless!

Use materials from the N.W. Harris Learning Collection at The Field Museum to engage students in scientific practices, develop critical thinking skills, and pique curiosity about Earth’s natural and cultural diversity.
