The Field Museum could be in for major changes.

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

"Everything is on the table," Field President Richard Lariviere said Tuesday.

Lariviere said he and the board are launching a major examination of the Field's mission and purpose. Or put another way, to answer the critical question: why are we here?
