A Night at the MuseumLast night, Susan and I spent the night at The Field Museum of Natural History. They host an event called, Dozin' with the Dinos! on select Fridays. This was an adventure with our niece and a nephew. They seemed to have a blast.
The evening began around 7 p.m. with several workshops to attend. These workshops consisted of activities like watching worms, looking at animal skulls, coloring butterflies, and more.
After the workshops, most of the regular exhibits were open to browse around. We explored the Chinese exhibit, What is an Animal?, meteorites, the timely earthquake display, and others.
Next was snack time. Much needed.
After snacks, we headed back upstairs for more workshops. We made snow goggles, colored Egyptian masks, and had our names printed in Egyptian hieroglyphics.
Then the lights started to turn off. We took a self-guided tour of ancient Egypt, and walked through the dinosaur exhibits. Very surreal seeing a dinosaur skeleton in a dark room with only a flashlight.
Once we hit 1 a.m., it was time to go to sleep in the Arctic World display. At 7 a.m., it was time to get up and head home.
