Field Museum 2.0

"Battered by the recession and a high debt load, the Field Museum on Tuesday announced plans to cut staff, overhaul its operations and limit the scope of its research," the Tribune reports.

"A comprehensive plan being drawn up by museum officials also could include changes to its hours of operation and the admission price for special exhibits. Staff reductions would be aimed at curators and scientists, according to museum officials."

As usual, the Beachwood has obtained an internal document outlining detailing measures under consideration or already underway.
