Celebrate Black History at the Museum
by AMNH on
Join us this Saturday from 3 to 5 pm for the premiere of “From the African Village to the Urban Village,” a performance featuring spoken word, live music, imagery, and dance that links Museum’s African Ethnological Collection to the contemporary African-American experience. “Here We Stand: Honor Black History” includes NEA Jazz Master Delfeayo Marsalis, renowned director Jamal Joseph, and acclaimed choreographer Obediah Wright together with the Oscar-nominated, Harlem-based IMPACT Repertory Theatre and New Orleans' Uptown Music Theatre.

Also this weekend, take a break from this long, cold winter in the Butterfly Conservatory. The lush green plants and more than 500 free-flying butterflies will remind you that summer is just a few months away.
With extreme weather on your mind, learn about the science of natural disasters in the Museum’s special exhibition Nature’s Fury. Go inside a tornado, generate a virtual volcano, and monitor real-time earthquakes to discover the titanic forces of nature that shape our dynamic planet.
