Restoring Mammal Hall: A 50th Anniversary Profile

3rd Floor


The Museum included Mammal Hall in the architectural plans in 1965. It took a team of curators, artists, and preparators, 3 years to complete, which opened in June 1968. As the 50th anniversary of Mammal Hall approached, it was clear that the dioramas needed—and deserved—more than a cleaning. This exhibit explores the science and art behind the 3 year restoration project.
