Historic Halls of the American Museum of Natural History


The Historic Halls Collection highlights the American Museum of Natural History’s iconic permanent exhibition halls throughout its history. The 3,000 images in this collection were selected to provide representations of each of the Museum exhibit halls for a thorough view of the gallery spaces through time, space, and concept, and therefore a glimpse into the evolution of the presentation of science and culture to the public. The Historic Halls Collection may be searched through scientific discipline or topic as well as by more than 100 permanent and historic hall names, creating a virtual tour of the Museum over time through archival photographs.
