How do you move a 150-year-old diorama through a huge museum? Very carefully.
When museum conservators moved the Lion Attacking a Dromedary diorama from its longtime home on the second floor of the museum to a new, prominent location near the Grand Staircase, a lot of thought went into keeping it safe in transit.
Loose parts were removed from the diorama, the structure was reinforced with wood, and the entire piece was wrapped in plastic to ensure safe transport.
Come visit the redisplayed diorama, now on the first floor of Carnegie Museum of Natural History!
