Behind the Scenes

Gold was designed and produced by the American Museum of Natural History's Department of Exhibition. The Exhibitions Department, in cooperation with other Museum staff members and scientific divisions, was responsible for both the design and construction of the exhibition. Take a quick peek behind the scenes at some Exhibitions staff members hard at work as they prepared exhibits for Gold.
