Picturing the Museum: Education and Exhibition at the American Museum of Natural History

Sample Image

Collection Description

Visual display of natural science has been a cornerstone of the mission of the American Museum of Natural History since its inception. Solidly based on the Museum's scientific exploration and research, AMNH educators, librarians and exhibition specialists have labored to make the knowledge and wonder of the natural world available to the public. Their efforts and those of their successors were, in turn, documented by museum staff and other photographers.

The Museum’s Research Library now manages its historical photographs and is following in the Museum's tradition of making its history and visual resources widely available for the people, for science, and for education.
