FREE ID Day at The Field Museum! September 19, 2017

Picked up a rock that looks suspiciously like a dinosaur fossil? Snapped a photo of a bright blue bird that you can’t identify? Your annual chance to get a world-renowned scientist’s take on it is coming up on Saturday, September 23 at The Field Museum’s ID Day.

You can bring in clean, dry bones, fossils, rocks, meteorites, seashells, feathers, artifacts, and photographs of mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, and insects—just nothing that’s alive or was recently, or the animals (or their fleas) could get loose in the Museum. And even if you don’t have anything to bring in, stop by anyway—the Museum’s scientists will have specimens on display for you to see (and touch) and are ready to talk shop about your favorite scientific topic.

ID Day will take place from 10 am- 2 pm in on Saturday, September 23 (a Free Day for Illinois residents) at The Field Museum’s main hall (near SUE the T. rex). See you (and your mystery objects) there!
