The Afternoon MIX

Free Days at the Field Museum



If you’re looking for a place with skeletons and strange creatures this Halloween, we’ve got you covered. The Field is offering six Free Days during the month of October!

Monday, October 5

Thursday, October 8

Monday, October 19

Thursday, October 22

Monday, October 26

Thursday, October 29

On these days, we’re offering free general admission to all Illinois residents with proof of residency. Our Monday Free Days coincide with free days at the Shedd Aquarium next door, so visitors can make a day of it.

As it gets chillier outside, the Field is the perfect place to get out of the house while staying safe—attendance is capped at 25% of the building’s normal capacity, masks and social distancing are mandatory, and it’s a big, airy, well-ventilated space. (And we have SUE face masks available for sale at the front door, if you’re looking to step up your Halloween mask game.) See you soon!
