Smart Destinations Partner The Field Museum Opens “World’s Fair” Exhibit


菲尔德博物馆被认为是美国最卓越的自然史博物馆之一,早已跻身智能目的地的最普遍的文化芝加哥景点 。今年秋天,菲尔德博物馆欢迎一个特殊的展览,邀请了世界更多地了解它是如何来到久负盛名的机构,今天它是:“打开墓穴:奇观1893世界博览会“。

The 1893 World Columbian Exposition marked Chicago’s entrance on the global stage. This exhibit is in part a retrospective of the popular World’s Fair and in part an homage to the history of what would become in the early 19th century The Field Museum. It is an unprecedented chance for visitors to explore a wide selection of the original art and artifacts, many of which have not been displayed to the public since the turn of the century.

Among many highlights of the exhibit, visitors will enjoy archival photography, an immersive large-scale projection series, and a number of key artifacts and entries from the 1893 World Columbian Exposition, including a massive meteorite, a life-size model of a giant squid, historic instruments from Java, and a selection of fossils and skeletons from The Field Museum’s collection. The exhibit also includes a representative sample of materials related to the transition that these artifacts made from the World Columbian Exposition to the Field Columbian Museum, which would build upon this original collection of 50,000 objects to become its modern incarnation as The Field Museum.

“This exhibit really captures this special moment in Chicago history, the glitz and glamor of the World’s Fair and the huge impact that it had on the development of this city,” said Pam Morin, Regional Director with Smart Destinations. “Our customers will enjoy this experience whether they’re first time visitors to Chicago or frequent travelers. It’s got something for everyone and we’re excited to offer it with our products.”

The exhibit recently opened and is expected to draw a large local and international audience. Admission to The Field Museum and “Opening the Vaults: Wonders of the 1893 World’s Fair” is available with Smart Destinations’ Go Select Chicago product. Visitors to the Windy City can add The Field Museum to a customized multi-attraction pass, or choose one of the specially curated Go Select packages which include The Field Museum, like the popular Must See Chicago package.
