The Field Museum, Chicago, Illinois, USA

Journey into the world famous Field Museum’s vast collections with Specimens from rare deep sea-dwelling creatures to fossil brains to meteorites, there are over 30 million specimens and artifacts.

They’re significant not only because of their number, but also because of the stories they tell. Among them is a tiny minnow that resides in a glass jar. To the naked eye, it’s insignificant, a brownish-grey smudge swimming in alcohol. But we know better: this minnow is precious. It’s long extinct, and this particular fish is the last remaining scientific record of its kind.

Scientists from around the world are using our collections every day to make discoveries, solve mysteries, and explore the wonder of the natural world. Together, these specimens weave a tapestry of life in our universe: what has been, what is, and what is still unknown. Join us on a quest to uncover the secrets these objects hold and to return to moments in time otherwise lost forever.
