American Museum of Natural History

The American Museum of Natural History, founded in 1869, is one of the world’s preeminent scientific, educational, and cultural institutions. The Museum encompasses more than 40permanent exhibition halls, including the Allison and Roberto Mignone Halls of Gems and Minerals, which opened in 2021–those in the Rose Center for Earth and Space and the Hayden Planetarium, as well as galleries for temporary exhibitions. The Museum’s scientists draw on a world-class research collection of more than 34 million artifacts and specimens, some of which are billions of years old, and on one of the largest natural history libraries in the world. Through its Richard Gilder Graduate School, the Museum grants the Ph.D. degree in Comparative Biology and the Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree, the only such free-standing, degree-granting programs at any museum in the United States. The Museum’s website, digital videos, and apps for mobile devices bring its collections, exhibitions, and educational programs to millions more around the world.

The American Museum of Natural History is a leading provider of engaging scientific content to partners around the world. Each year, the American Museum of Natural History produces a variety of traveling exhibitions, immersive planetarium shows, and other content drawn from the Museum’s vast scientific expertise and collections. More than 250 venues in 44 countries have presented Museum-produced content to educate, entertain, and inspire visitors of all ages, in more than 39 countries on six continents.
