We will performing system maintenance from 9-11 p.m. tonight. The website will be unavailable. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Under the familiar surface of nature, every living thing is a machine with every feature built for survival. All species—from the long-extinct to the recently-discovered—have evolved specialized ways of adapting to the world. In this traveling exhibition from The Field Museum, visitors discover the marvels of natural engineering—and see how humans can draw inspiration from the innovations of evolution. The Science Museum of Minnesota worked with the Field Museum to prototype and fabricate a suite of new interactive components for the exhibition.
