NEW IN EXHIBITIONS: Anthropocene Living Room
Curl up with a good book in our brand new Anthropocene Living Room! The Anthropocene is a newly proposed geological epoch – one that is defined by the pervasive impact of humans. When visiting the museum, we hope that visitors will take the time to relax and learn about this epoch in our living room. It’s a space meant for reflection and discussion of the Anthropocene and how it is related to all of the exhibits within the museum.
A special display case covers the history of humans impact on planetary systems, a television shows scenes from nature, and books for all ages are available to read. News stories hang on the wall and will be changed periodically to keep up with the latest scientific discoveries and actions to protect the Earth.
Check out the Anthropocene Living Room on the Third Floor Jurassic Overlook.
