News posts

Kick off the holiday season at the Museum this weekend with a visit to the Museum’s Origami Holiday Tree, now on view in the Grand Gallery (first floor).

This year, look for your favorite characters from the Night at the Museum movies—many based on exhibits that can be found at the Museum—among the three’s 800-plus hand-folded paper models.  

Look for Tyrannosaurus rex, Theodore Roosevelt, the capuchin monkey, and the Rapa Nui (Easter Island) Moai , then find the real Museum exhibits with this self-guided tour.
