The Field Museum has graciously invited the Chicago Tour-Guide Professionals Association (CTPA) to explore their new "First Kings of Europe" exhibition! Discover more than 700 objects dating back to 5000 BCE, including the oldest human-made gold creations, the glimmering gold crown of a Thracian prince, and King Kotys I's sphinx and horse-shaped drinking cup set (pictured). This collection has never been shown together before and will be on display at the Field Museum from March 31, 2023 through January 28, 2024.
CTPA members can explore this blockbuster exhibition for free as a self-guided tour on one of these two dates:
- Tuesday, April 25 at 10:00 am
- Tuesday, May 9 at 10:00 am
Attendance is capped at 15 people per date, so please only register if you will definitely be there. If after you sign-up you can no longer attend the event, please cancel your registration on the CTPA website so the next person on the waitlist can join.
I hope you can make it to one of these site visits!
