Standout Venue Features:
Guests in Stanley Field Hall are greeted by gleaming white marble interiors, sky lit vaulted ceilings, and stately columns—

Gleaming white marble, vaulted ceilings, and gracious columns set the stage for a spectacular event. 

Stanley Field Hall is a premier Chicago event space, with iconic features everywhere your guests look: African elephants prepared by famed taxidermist Carl Akeley, large hanging gardens and flying pterosaurs, and our (literally) biggest attraction, Máximo the Titanosaur.

This expansive hall can accommodate a wide range of events—wedding, galas, and more. Customize your event by making use of the second floor balcony or, weather permitting, outdoor terraces and other adjoining spaces. You can also  encourage guests' curiosity with exclusive access to our ongoing or temporary exhibitions.
