The American Museum of Natural History is currently open. However, due to inclement weather, some programs have been cancelled. Please check here for a full list, and check back for updates.
Regular updates will also be posted to our Facebook page and Twitter account (@AMNH).
Within the overall mission of the AMNH, the Division of Paleontology seeks to describe the diversity of extinct invertebrates and vertebrates and explore the mechanisms driving their evolution and extinction.
In fulfillment of this objective the Department collects, maintains, and researches specimens of fossil and subfossil invertebrates and vertebrates, and the data associated with these specimens, aiming always to provide the highest standards of curatorial care, and to promote and assist access to the collections by bona fide scholars.
