Theodore Roosevelt Tour of the Museum: Wading Birds Diorama

On Exhibit posts

The restored Theodore Roosevelt Memorial is now open, and a new self-guided tour—available as part of the Museum's Explorer app, or on our website—highlights exhibits and places around the Museum with a connection to TR, who was President from 1901 to 1909. In this post, the sixth in a series, we visit the Wading Birds diorama, in the Leonard C. Sanford Hall of North American Birds.

True-to-Life Snow in the Lynx Diorama

On Exhibit posts

A multi-video series about the restoration of the dioramas in the Jill and Lewis Bernard Family Hall of North American Mammals, now on and on the Museum's YouTube channel, documents their renovation. In this post, the third in a series, we share one of the videos, which explains how Museum artists re-created snow for several dioramas, including the Canada Lynx and Varying Hare's.
