We're taking the Museum outside! A new outdoor nature area is sprouting up around the Natural History Museum, bringing a fun and interactive park and habitat area right into the heart of the city. Think of it as the city's new backyard, filled with a range of garden environments and interactive opportunities for visitors of all ages to watch birds and search for bugs, stroll along a creek, ramble through a grove of trees, and gaze at butterflies and bees in a new Pollinator Garden. For more details about the Nature Gardens project check out our website.
