The Wharton Club of Chicago in conjunction with the Harvard Business School Club of Chicago invites you to the Field Museum!
Big Changes At The Field Museum: Family Friendly Event
When visiting the Museum in July, the biggest dinosaur ever discovered, the new Titanosaur will be on exhibit, along with a flock of flying Pterosaur, and new hanging gardens. The two recommended exhibits are: Stanley Field Hall and Griffin Halls of Evolving Planet.
“The Titanosaur is huge, and it’ll look right at home in Stanley Field Hall,” said Senior Exhibitions Project Manager Hilary Hansen. “It’s a big, majestic space, which will be the perfect backdrop for the world’s largest dinosaur.” The Stanley Field Hall cast will be the only Patagotitan in the world that visitors are able to touch and only the second to ever be on display.
Prior to the CEO talk, you are welcome to visit the museum (included) starting as early as 2:30 pm. ALL Guests MUST check in at the Founder's Room. Then you are welcome to visit the museum until 4:45 pm. Return to the Founder’s Room promptly for the visit with CEO Richard Lariviere (or leave the museum when it closes at 5:00 pm).
Special Speaker, Richard Lariviere, has been the President and Chief Executive Officer since October 2012. Click here for more information about Richard's impressive awards, and academic & international accomplishments.
