Upcoming Exhibitions

Special exhibitions are an important complement to the Museum's permanent halls: in-depth explorations of wide-ranging science topics or an animal group. Part information, part narrative, part theater, special exhibitions are storytelling in three dimensions. All show scientists at work and convey that science is a career, a process, and a way of being and thinking in the world.
