Special Exhibits Included with CityPASS
Images of the Afterlife
Through January 20, 2014
Two ancient Egyptian mummies from Field Museum collections will come face-to-face with the public like never before in Images of the Afterlife. Recent CT scans and the latest 3D imaging revealed the mummies’ age-old secrets to Museum scientists, and enabled an artist to create hyper-realistic sculptures portraying how these two individuals looked in life, thousands of years ago. Now no longer merely mummies #30007 and #11517, you’ll be able to envision the mummified remains as real persons—a woman in her forties with curly hair and a teenage boy named Minirdis.
State of Deception: The Power of Nazi Propaganda
Through February 2, 2014
After World War I, an obscure political party first formed in Germany with a few dozen members. But led by an adroit propaganda strategist named Adolf Hitler, this group eventually became the Nazi Party, and went on to persuade a generation of Germans to adopt radical policies and head into war. This thoughtful traveling exhibition from the US Holocaust Memorial Museum features rarely seen artifacts, and will help visitors understand how simple, strong imagery and a well-strategized propaganda campaign could be so persuasive and destructive.
State of Deception: The Power of Nazi Propaganda was produced by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
Opening the Vaults: Wonders of the 1893 World's Fair
Through September 7, 2014
Not only the birthplace of the Juicy Fruit chewing gum and the Ferris Wheel, the World’s Fair also marked the triumphant debut of our very own Field Museum. Now, 120 years later, the Museum is opening its hidden collections to display incredible artifacts and specimens that will bring to life one of the most spectacular events in the Windy City’s history in Opening the Vaults: Wonders of the 1893 World’s Fair. See objects that have rarely—or never—been on display since they amazed fairgoers over a hundred years ago, including a meteorite so feared it was kept chained in a dungeon. Explore how the fair brought visitors closer than ever to unique wonders like exotic animals, international cultures, and strange new products from all over the world. And see how Field Museum scientists continue to conduct ground-breaking research on the ever-growing collection using new technology.
