The Andros Coral Reef Diorama: Standing on the Floor of the Sea

Dive beneath the surface of one of the most iconic dioramas at the American Museum of Natural History and travel back in time to the 1920s, when Museum curator Roy Waldo Miner led expeditions to the crystal waters of the Bahamas to transplant a coral reef to New York City. Artist Stephen Quinn leads a journey through the fascinating history of the Museum’s only two-story diorama and the tremendous effort by scientists, artists, and builders to bring the Andros Coral Reef to life for generations of Museum visitors.
