Happy new year! You're invited to join us at the Museum to kick off 2019. Here's a glimpse of what's on this month.

Get back to nature when you see the giant-screen film Backyard Wilderness, showing in 2D and 3D in the LeFrak Theater. You are sure to come away eager to explore wildlife right outside your door, including animal babies galore. You don’t even have to unplug to do it! The teen in this story uses her cell phone to tell the story of salamanders migrating to a breeding pond in spring.

The spectacular Origami Holiday Tree: Oceans of Origami—inspired by the exhibition Unseen Oceanswill be up through Sunday, January 13, with volunteers from OrigamiUSA on hand nearby to guide you through the art of making a paper model.

For an extra-special treat this month, consider a cozy winter camping trip on A Night at the Museum Sleepover. There are three dates available—January 4, 19, and January 25—for children ages 6–13 to enjoy roaming the halls with flashlights after hours before settling down under the blue whale, amid African mammals, or at the base of a volcanic formation.

And remember, ever Friday the Discovery Room features Gateway Storytime for preschoolers and their parents at 10 am and 11 am. Tickets are free for Members or with Museum admission and distributed on a first-come, first-served basis outside the Rose Center/81st Street entrance between 9:45 and 10:05 am. Space is limited so come early!
