DOWNTOWN — Chicago Public Schools students can get into the Field Museum for free during the rest of the teachers strike.

The museum is offering free basic admission to students on weekdays until the strike ends. It’s also discounting its All-Access and Discovery passes. Students need to show proof of residency in Chicago for the deal.

Adults and non-students will be charged as normal, and children 13 or younger need to be accompanied by an adult to visit the museum.
