Join us on a visit to the American Museum of Natural History, one of the world's preeminent scientific and cultural institutions! Since its founding in 1869, this museum has advanced its global mission to discover, interpret and disseminate information about human cultures, the natural world and the universe through a wide-ranging program of scientific research, education and exhibition. The Museum is renowned for its exhibitions and scientific collections that serve as a field guide to the entire planet and present a panorama of the world's cultures.
The Museum's collections contain over 32 million specimens of which only a small fraction can be displayed at any given time. It also boasts habitat groups of African, Asian and North American mammals, the full-size model of a Blue Whale suspended in the Milstein Family Hall of Ocean Life, the 62 foot (19m) Haida carved and painted war canoe from the Pacific Northwest, the massive Cape York meteorite and the "Star of India", the largest blue sapphire in the world. The circuit of an entire floor is devoted to vertebrate evolution. Take time to explore its extensive anthropological collections including Asian Peoples, Pacific Peoples, Man in Africa, Native Americans in the United States collections, general Native American collections and collections from Mexico and Central America.
