"Chocolate: The Exhibition," will engage the senses and trace the evolution of chocolate from a small, bitter seed found deep in the rainforest to the continent-spanning delicacy it is today. Learn about the biology of cacao while sitting under a life-sized tree, barter for seeds at a realistic Aztec marketplace, and follow cacao across the Atlantic as it grows into a global commodity. 

Coming June 17.

Mars: Science and Culture shows unforgettable images taken by exploration spacecraft during the development of our understanding about the Red Planet.  Movie posters and memorabilia interspersed throughout the exhibit show the fanciful and sometimes frightening ways in which Mars has been perceived in popular culture and science fiction.

New Mexico is well-known for its rich fossil record spanning some 500 million years. Of particular note are the many unique fossil vertebrates that include fishes, amphibians, reptiles (turtles, dinosaurs, and birds) and mammals. This exhibit displays some of the recent discoveries and iconic fossils from the ‘Land of Enchantment’ that were collected by the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science.
