At the Museum
Looking for an exciting way to spend your morning or afternoon?
Carnegie Museum of Natural History invites you to explore nature throughout the museum with an open house featuring activities for seniors. Dinosaurs! Mammals! Gems! Minerals! Botany! Birds! World Cultures! Meet with one of the museum’s Natural History Interpreters and journey through some of Carnegie Museum of Natural History’s most historic, and scientifically significant, and beloved collections.
Join us for this specifically themed Birds afternoon! Explore the new exhibition, Chirp, Chitter, Caw: Surrounded by Birdsong. This exhibition asks visitors to look, listen, and consider the world through their ears instead of their eyes. Relax in a listening lounge, mimic unusual bird calls, stroll down Bird Hall and hear sonic snapshots created by artists Chris Hoff and Sam Harnett — founders of the organization The World According to Sound. This temporary installation encourages visitors to tune into the world of birdsong and discover the beauty and complexity of avian communication that surrounds us every day.
Coffee, tea and light snacks will be available in the Senior Social lounge.
