Time Out says

Learn about how Dr. Jane Goodall changed that way that scientists study the natural world in this new exhibition, produced by National Geographic Society in partnership with the Jane Goodall Institute. "Becoming Jane" tracks Goodall's entire career, beginning when she was a young woman interested in learning about animals in Africa and contiuning as she established her innovative approach to studying chimpanzees in Tanzania’s Gombe Stream National Park.

Opening on May 21, "Becoming Jane" features a collection of Dr. Goodall’s childhood belongings and a replica of her field research tent. The exhibit also harnesses augmented reality technology, allowing guests to interact with represenations of chimpansees and a hologram-like projection of Dr. Goodall.

Admission to "Becoming Jane" will be included in the Field Museum's Discovery and All-Access tickets.
