  • Go back... way back in Prehistoric Journey, an engaging exhibit where you’ll trace the history of life on Earth, going from 3.5-billion-year-old single-celled organisms to dinosaurs to today’s creatures.
  • Don’t miss the spectacular 3-D wildlife displays depicting over 90 groupings of animals from around the world in the Wildlife Halls.
  • Watch your little ones "excavate" fossils, experiment with water in action, test building methods and materials, and create art projects in the Discovery Zone.
  • Explore the miracle of the human body in Expedition Health®, an interactive, highly-personalized exhibit where you’ll get to look at your cells under a microscope!
  • Delight in all things dazzling and shiny! Explore a silver mine leading to a cavern overflowing with stalactites and white gypsum crystals, and admire Tom’s Baby, a nugget of gold that weighs in at eight pounds.
  • Admire Vasily Konovalenko’s intricately carved figures, all of which are crafted from precious gems, in Konovalenko: Gem Carvings of Russian Folk Life.
  • Celebrate the incredible diversity of the North American natives, from Inuit to Navajo. See authentic reconstructed dwellings from assorted indigenous peoples and watch videos explaining their culture.
  • Indulge your inner archaeologist as you explore Egyptian Mummies. Learn about how technology like CT scans and radiocarbon dating has shed new light on the lives and deaths of two female mummies hosted inside this stunning exhibit.
