Chicago's Field Museum may cut jobs in an effort to save money, according to a report in Crain's Chicago Business.

The museum will eliminate $5 million from its budget while trying to raise money and open a restaurant, according to the report.

Crain's said visitors are not likely to notice major changes in the exhibits.

The budget cuts could affect the anthropology, geology and zoology departments, the report said.
