This year's Origami Holiday Tree is now lighting up the Grand Gallery, on the Museum's first floor. Decked with 800 hand-folded paper models, the tree's theme this year is "Wicked, Wild, and Wonderful," inspired by the new exhibition The Power of Poison. Museum icons, including dinosaurs of many kinds, also grace the tree.
The weekend weather may be blustery, but inside the Museum it's warm and dry—and there are multiple exhibitions open, plus Dark Universe, our new Space Show.
