  Field Museum of Natural History - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It was named the Columbian Museum of Chicago on September 16, 1893 but renamed after Marshall Field, a major donor, in 1905.
The museum was originally housed in the structure now occupied by the Museum of Science and Industry but the current location is a building that opened in 1921.
The Museum's newest permanent exhibit, "Evolving Planet" (formerly "Life Over Time"), utilizes the museum's extensive fossil collection, in order to present both the history and the evolution of life on earth, over a span of 4 billion years, from the first organism to present-day life.

When the Field Museum agreed last week to showcase an ancient sarcophagus owned by a powerful Chicago executive, it ended an awkward spat with Egypt’s antiquities czar but committed the museum to displaying an artifact of questionable historical value.
Museum officials on Friday had yet to examine the 2,600-year-old stone coffin at the center of a tiff between Exelon CEO John Rowe and Zahi Hawass, secretary general of Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities–a dispute that threatened to mar the opening of the exhibit “Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs.”
A spokeswoman for the St. Louis Museum said she is “confounded” by Hawass’ claims that the mask was stolen.
