NEW IN EXHIBITIONS: Renovated Heritage Cases
Start your visit to Carnegie Museum of Natural History out right by exploring our intriguing new display of heritage cases which are featured around the grand staircase, just outside of the gift store. The free-standing heritage cases which have recently been cleaned and refurbished by museum conservation experts display some of the museum's bird, reptile, and small mammal specimens, placed in colorful dioramas.
Don't miss the case showing the critically endangered ivory-bill woodpecker, often called the “Elvis Bird” because of its infrequent sightings by humans, or the exquisite ivory eagle, sculpted in the late 19th century, by a Japanese artist.
The heritage cases are on display indefinitely and are sure to be a new family favorite.
