A beautiful weekend coming up in NYC. If you're looking for things to do, here are a few highlights here at the Museum:

On Exhibit:

See more than 200 live frogs in Frogs: A Chorus of Colors, including amazing, tiny blue dart-poison frogs like the one pictured, below. From lush rainforests to parched deserts, frogs are found in nearly every environment on Earth, and their survival strategies range from surprising to bizarre. Who knew?
