Visitors to the exhibition can see some of the most amazing objects in The Field’s collections, including a giant clamshell (that they can touch), a nearly six-foot-long sawfish snout, and a drawer full of now-extinct butterflies with silvery-blue wings. They can also try their hand at sorting seashells into different species and walk into a reconstructed map-lined office of a long-time Museum curator. An interactive touchscreen encourages visitors to explore ancient insects—millions of years old—trapped in amber.
