Epic Encounter: Giant Squid and Sperm Whale

On Exhibit posts

A thrilling life-and-death struggle between a giant squid and a sperm whale is a highlight of the Museum’s special exhibition Whales: Giants of the Deep. The animation brings to life a scene that has fascinated visitors for decades—the sperm whale and giant squid diorama in the Irma and Paul Milstein Family Hall of Ocean Life, which is now celebrating the 10th anniversary of a masterful renovation.

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.
