1893 World's Columbian Exposition
For six short months in 1893, Jackson Park in Chicago was home to one of the largest and most spectacular expositions of the 19th Century. Near the close of the Fair, The Field Columbian Museum (now The Field Museum) was founded. When the Museum opened in 1894, visitors could once again experience many of the exhibits they had seen at the fair.

As the planned outcome of Chicago’s 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition, The Field Museum may well be called “the Fair that never ended.”
