Becoming Jane: The Evolution of Dr. Jane Goodall
The Field Museum
1400 S. Lake Shore Drive
Chicago, IL 60605
Highlights of the exhibition at The Field Museum include some of Dr. Goodall’s childhood belongings, such as a beloved stuffed monkey, interspersed with stories about her as a budding naturalist, studying a chicken coop at age 4. The exhibition also features augmented reality interactives that invite visitors to try their hand at chimpanzee vocalizations, a hologram-like projection of Dr. Goodall sharing her memories of living among the chimpanzees, and a replica of her field research tent.
Produced by the National Geographic Society in partnership with the Jane Goodall Institute, the exhibition explores Dr. Goodall’s life from her early years as an intrepid young woman with a dream to learn about animals in Africa, to her years establishing herself as a renowned scientist in Gombe National Park, Tanzania, to her present role as an activist, mentor and advocate for creating a better world for all life on Earth.
