Make it an all-Neil deGrasse Tyson weekend. Before the debut of the much-anticipated "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey" on Fox this Sunday—hosted by the Museum's own Frederick P. Rose Director of the Hayden Planetarium—stop in to see the new Space Show, Dark Universe. Dr. Tyson narrates a journey through space and time to explore the latest findings in cosmology and the nature of dark matter and dark energy.

Watch the trailer below (and save the date for the Tyson-moderated Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate, streamed live on amnh.org/live on Wednesday, March 19).



If spring can't arrive too soon for you, take a trip to The Butterfly Conservatory, where butterflies from around the world fly freely in a warm, specially built vivarium, filled with tropical plants. 

Watch a video to learn more.


On Sunday, March 9, you can also learn to fold baby animals, Carmen's stars, shadow boxes, and more, in special classes from OrigamiUSA held at the Museum.
