Periodical Cicadas at the Museum

On Exhibit posts

While much of the Eastern seaboard is getting prepared for the coming of the 17-year periodical cicadas, Manhattanites may miss the show. (The cicadas have virtually never been recorded on this urban island.) But starting Wednesday, May 22, you can see periodical cicadas on the Upper West Side, here at the Museum.

The Museum's Blue Whale Model

On Exhibit posts

When the Irma and Paul Milstein Family Hall of Ocean Life re-opened to the public in 2003, the newly renovated gallery was transformed: 14 dioramas, some first built in the 1930s, had been restored, and brand-new ecosystem displays highlighted the diversity of ocean habitats and the species that lived together within them. The blue-whale model, on display since 1969, was renovated, too.
