The Best of Facebook Live – Now on YouTube!

News posts

In the last few months, Museum curators, scientists, students, and more have joined us for dozens of great conversations on Facebook Live.These short, informal videos can provide tours of the Museum's halls and exhibitions from anywhere in the world, such as this look around Crocs: Ancient Predators in a Modern World led by geneticist Evon Hekkala.

You can also get behind-the-scenes access to collections that aren't on display, like this tour of the Ambrose Monell Cryo Collection from George Amato, director of the Sackler Institute for Comparative Genomics. 

Cool, right? We encourage you to follow the Museum on Facebook to get more videos like this in your feed. When you watch live, it's an unparalleled chance to pick the brain of some of the world's foremost scientists from the comfort of your own home, or just your own phone.

But we also get that's not always feasible, so stay tuned to the Museum's Facebook Live playlist on our YouTube channel, too. We'll be posting some of our favorite Facebook Live appearances—like Center for Biodiversity and Conservation researcher Rae Wynn-Grant discussing her work tracking black bears in the American southwest—to this playlist, so you can check them out at your convenience, whether you're on Facebook or not.
