Announcements

Smithsonian Institution recently visited the Museum

Experts from the Smithsonian Institution visited the Museum: they photographed the mural in the Evolving Grasslands hall. The mural was painted by Jay Matternes in 1960 and depicts a scene from 45 million years ago. Instead of taking just one big photo, they will take hundreds of photos that will be stitched back together to make one high-resolution image.
