Mammals of the Museum Smartphone Tour
Be one of the FIRST users to try a new type of tour we’re developing at The Field Museum. This smartphone tour will take you around the museum introducing you to extreme mammals right here in our collection. Each stop will feature video, audio, or some great factoids to amaze your friends. You can choose a tour for adults or one that’s just for kids—be sure to look for signs in the Museum on how to access these tours on your smartphone.

(Psst! At the end of each tour, you’ll be able to tell us what you think so we can make your visits to The Field Museum better and better. We look forward to receiving your feedback!)
