Celebrate the Holidays Elephants: New Exhibits Must See at the American Museum of Natural History
If you haven’t yet – it is time to walk into the new The Secret World of Elephants exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History, and you’ll get a sense of just how amazing these gentle giants are in the wild.
The Secret World of Elephants has just opened in the narrow, but expansive, curatorial space of uptown’s museum. The exhibition tells the story of the elephant species and relatives using life-size models and graphics.
“We are delighted to present The Secret World of Elephants, a comprehensive look at these intriguing and important animals and the latest scientific thinking about their abilities, environmental roles, social structure, history and future,” Sean M. Decatur, president of the American Museum of Natural History, said. “This exhibition is an example of what the American Museum of Natural History does so well: by starting at a point of shared curiosity and fascination we can share larger stories about evolution, the environment, animal behavior, and the interactions between human and animals, thereby expanding understanding of the natural world and our impact on it.”
