The Field Museum is an incredible place to teach kids about the
science of natural history, but did you know scientists come from
all over the world to study the thousands of specimens the public
never gets to see?

division of mammals, gave Chicago Parent a behind-the-scenes look
at the museum's mammal specimen collections and how something like
a chipmunk can go from roadkill to research participant.
