Need a break from pondering the pigskin this Super Bowl weekend? The Museum's Space Show, Dark Universe, can transport you to the edges of space, while our 45 exhibition halls offer windows onto nature, from the familiar to the fantastic.

Dark Universe


What might dark matter look like? Find out in our Space Show, Dark Universe. 


The universe is less than 5 percent ordinary matter; what makes up the other 95 percent? Researchers have not yet pinned that down, but you can see the most up-to-date visualizations of dark matter in our new Space Show, Dark Universe. Learn more and buy tickets.

Newly restored and reopened in the fall of 2012, the Bernard Family Hall of North American Mammals features more than 40 splendid dioramas featuring some of the 500 or so mammal species found in North America.
