Mission: to create a positive relationship between people and nature through collaborations, education, research and collections, exhibitions, and public forums to grow our regions urban connection to the world of nature and science. Founded in 1857, the Chicago Academy of Sciences was founded by nature aficionados and amateur scientists seeking a space where they could study and share the specimens they collected. It was citizen science in action before the term was even invented! In addition to being the first private scientific museum founded in Chicago, the Academy became Chicagos first public museum when it opened its doors to all visitors in 1869. This action would shape the institutions educational focus and commitment as a community museum. More Info below.
