Joining all of our other Chicago museums, the Field is offering an after hours evening event. Essentially the museum will be staying open until 9PM on select dates and people over the age of 21 can access Base Camp.
What is Base Camp
Base Camp is open to ages 21 and over and is located in the The Field Bistro. The Bistro will be transformed into a themed lounge where adults can sip themed cocktails, interact with Field scientists, and take a break from exploring the Museum. Each month a new featured mixologist will will be pouring cocktails that pair with the evenings experience. Food and beverages are extra.
Pay extra to booze it up with scientists
They’ve reduced the price which was $45 for the June 6 event. Now you can purchase any museum admission: Basic Admission $22, a Discovery Pass $30 or an All-Access Pass for $36 the and the cost of the Base Camp is included. Access to Jurassic World in the evening is an extra $25. Pass info and purchase tickets.
Night v. Day
Museum admission is the same during Summer Late Night and Daytime. Summer Late Night admission to Jurassic World is $10 more than during the day. If you’re interested in science and talking with scientists (while drinking) this is probably a good deal. 2017 Museum free days.
