Diverse exhibits bring world to visitors
From cave paintings to fashions, The Field Museum offers something for everyone
CHICAGO – Whether it's walking down the runway in the latest fashions, or getting wrapped up in the world of a mummy, The Field Museum provides the old, the new, and the different.
Temporary exhibits at the museum have a little something for everyone. Fashion and The Field Museum Collection: Maria Pinto does not show just museum pieces such as a vest made from crocodile skin, a rubber-coated dress, a necklace made from conch shells, or a seal intestine raincoat. The display is a combination of the museum's own fashions and the work of Chicago fashion designer Maria Pinto.
Images of the Afterlife has been in the museum since last June. Visitors are in for a treat here. Two very old mummies from Egypt have undergone CT scans and 3-D imaging. Today's science makes it possible to see what the mummies looked like as living people. One is a woman, and the other a boy. Stop by and see who they are.
