The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County will open its newly restored 1913 Building in July with Age of Mammals -- an exhibition thats been 65 million years in the making. This is the first permanent museum exhibit to trace the history of evolution -- from the extinction of the dinosaurs to the rise of humans -- within the context of epochal changes in the Earths geology and climate, says John Harris, the Natural History Museums head of vertebrate studies and chief curator of the Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits.. We believe this new way of telling our story is not only exciting and illuminating but provides a powerful message for people today about climate change and human impact on our environment.. Age of Mammals will fill one wing of the 1913 Building with a mix of ancient fossils, modern specimens and interactive multimedia. Visitors can learn how violent movements of the great land masses radically affected global temperatures and weather patterns and how these ...

The Canadian Postal Museum was established in 1971 and opened in 1974 as the National Postal Museum. It joined the Canadian Museum of Civilization in 1988, adopted its current name in 1996, and moved into a permanent space in the Museum of Civilization in 1997..

In 1960, the Science Museum - taking advantage of a state-sponsored experiment into the use of acoustic guidance in national museums and galleries - introduced a new technology for audio interpretation known as the Radio-Guided Tour. The experiment had initially been proposed by the Ministry of Works, which promised to extend the scheme to other publicly owned national museums, subject to successful trials. With an in-house workshop ready to respond to technical failures and as an experiment into applied science in its own right, the Science Museum was the obvious host for the Radio-Guided Tour experiment. The technology comprised of a miniature radio station which broadcast a taped commentary via a loop induction system to a series of hand-held radio receivers. The radio receivers, known colloquially as lorgnettes, were made available for hire at the Museums bookstall at a cost of one shilling and a returnable deposit of ten shillings (see Figure 5). The first exhibition space to host the ...

The task of deciding whose duties live under that umbrella tends to fall to people pretty high up on an institutions food chain. At the Field Museum, that power rests with the executive team, says Ray DeThorne, the chief marketing officer; anyone trying to enter the building must flash a letter signed by a museum executive, saying that they have permission to step inside. (In an effort to enforce social distancing, the city has restricted access to the roads around the museum, which lead to the tantalizing shores of Lake Michigan.) The Field Museum has 480 employees and currently averages around 20 people in the building each day, DeThorne says. We want a minimal number of people in the institution, and have two things were concerned about: The health and safety of employees, and the safety of our 40 million specimens and artifacts, he says. At the Museum of London, most employees seeking access need sign-off from a department head and the security team, and must make arrangements in ...

The first predecessor to todays National Museum was the Insular Museum of Ethnology, Natural History, and Commerce under the Department of Public Instruction, created in 1901 by the Philippine Commission. In `903, the Museum was subsequently transferred to the Department of Interior and renamed the Bureau of Ethnological Survey. This new bureau was responsible for the Philippine participation in the Louisiana Purchase Exposition of 1904. After the exposition, it was abolished as a separate bureau and renamed the Philippine Museum. The museums structure again changed in 1933 when the Philippine Legislature divided the museum. The museums Division of Fine Arts and History went to the National Library. Its Division of Ethnology went to the Bureau of Science. Finally its Division of Anthropology, which included archaeology, ethnography and physical anthropology, and the other sections of natural history of the Bureau of Science, were organized into a National History Museum Division. This was ...

AU - Aarle, van, M.A.P.. PY - 2007. Y1 - 2007. N2 - In a lot of Dutch museums climate-related problems occur, especially in museums in which the Delta plan is implied. Three different types of museums were chosen and thoroughly investigated. The problems in each type of museum are different. Therefore museum climate standards should be customized for each case. Demands are often based on object requirements only, but it is important that also the building, the climate installation and the visitors are being considered. Moreover, local conditions can be very different than the conditions near the Building Management System sensors..

The Fleet Air Arm Museum can trace its origins to 1974 when a group of volunteers associated with the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) obtained five obsolete RAN aircraft and began work to establish a museum for display of artifacts to present the story of Australian Naval aviation. $80m were raised from various sources for a large hangar and function centre. In 1990, the Australian Naval Aviation Museum Foundation was established to operate the museum. In 2000, the museum was renamed Australias Museum of Flight and its role expanded to displaying artifacts related to Australian aviation. In 2006, ownership and management of the museum were handed to the Royal Australian Navy and it was renamed the Fleet Air Arm Museum. The museum now displays more than 34 aircraft and many aviation artifacts.[4] ...

Animals with backbones (vertebrates) make up only 4% of the species on our planet. Yet when you walk into a natural history museum, theyre all you see. The dinosaur skeletons stretching across a ballroom? Vertebrates. Dioramas starring posed buffalo, lions, or zebra? Vertebrates. The endless cases of delicate stuffed birds? You guessed it: vertebrates.. Its a real tragedy: far and away, most of the animal kingdom is tiny, said Jack Ashby, Manager of the Grant Museum of Zoology at University College London. Natural history museums really only ever put big animals on display. Thats not very representative of nature.. A new permanent exhibit at the museum, called the Micrarium, tries to fill the gap by displaying the smallest organisms. Microscope slides containing cross-sections of insects and other invertebrates are stacked wall-to-wall in a small room, lit from behind. Visitors can see the detail of the eye-level slides-but the point is larger than any of the individual animals.. All ...
A museum in the Phoenix area is hoping to add an eye-catching element to its building - and its looking for donations to get the project going. The Arizona Museum of Natural History, located in a nondescript building in downtown Mesa, is easy to miss from the street. Thats part of why museum officials want to install a life-sized replica of a carnivorous dinosaur - one that will appear to be bursting through the wall of the museum.

Museums are embracing technologies, such as DNA sequencing, to both enhance understanding of their collections and showcase scientific research to the public. Many museums around the world now have molecular laboratories. DNA sequencing has many useful applications for museum research; for example, it can be used to distinguish new species, determine the evolutionary relationships between species and identify the region of origin of artefacts such as kahu kiwi (kiwi feather cloaks). However, it has only recently been appreciated that care should be taken in the construction and use of museum molecular labs. Why is the situation for museums different to universities and other institutions where molecular biology labs are commonplace?. Museums are storehouses of important biological collections and these can become contaminated with copies of DNA that are generated in molecular laboratories. A technique routinely used in molecular labs in the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). PCR is an extremely ...
The history of the museum can be said to begin in 1780 with the foundation of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland, which still continues, but whose collection of archaeological and other finds was transferred to the government in 1858 as the National Museum of Antiquities of Scotland, based in Queen Street in the New Town, Edinburgh.[4]. In 1861 construction of the Industrial Museum of Scotland began, with Prince Albert laying the foundation stone. In 1866, renamed the Edinburgh Museum of Science and Art, the eastern end and the Grand Gallery were opened by Prince Alfred. In 1888 the building was finished and in 1904 the institution was renamed the Royal Scottish Museum.[5]. The organizational merger of the National Museum of Antiquities of Scotland and the Royal Scottish Museum took place in 1985, but the two collections retained separate buildings until 1995 when the Queen Street building closed, to reopen later as the Scottish National Portrait Gallery. In 1998 the new Museum of Scotland ...
TULSA, Okla. - Ground was broken Friday for what will be a $30 million project to commemorate the history of the Greenwood district in Tulsa.

Two Pacific lampreys, residents at the High Desert Museum since February, were released Thursday into the upper Umatilla River basin through a re-introduction effort to restore the population of the culturally important fish. The High Desert Museum housed the two jawless, snakelike fish in partnership with the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation, which is working with other local tribes to manage the lampreys dwindling population. In the next few weeks, members of the Umatilla tribe will bring another pair of Pacific lamprey to the museum. Jessica Stewart, associate curator of wildlife at the High Desert Museum, said the museum plans to regularly house and release lampreys, making the prehistoric fish a consistent attraction at the museum. The lampreys presence at the museum has helped educate the public about the often misunderstood creature, Stewart said. At first glance, lampreys startle people with their circular mouths, filled with sharp teeth. But lampreys are a ...

Image: Rick Snyders Vegetable Resource Page This is not unusual. Weve found similar omissions at the vast majority of small-town science-related museums we visit. We praise the Tomato Museums historical intentions, as well as the fact that it has been successfully launched and beautifully sited. To be fair, unless any new museum receives professional advice and ample funding for exhibit design, it often takes many years for a museum to mature and realize its founders vision. Also, other tomato towns and festivals have no tomato museums at all, and this one charges no fee. To date, the worlds best known museum of this kind is on the Channel Island of Guernsey-a UK crown dependency. As if to illustrate that tomato museums really can be fascinating for children and do improve over time, Laura Solon (Times Online, 2008) writes: I dont think I will ever be able to dissociate holidays entirely from the Tomato Museum in Guernsey. We had many family holidays to the island, which if you are aged ...
By 1901, dime museums had existed in NYC for about 60 years, starting with P.T. Barnums American Museum, which opened in 1842 and was wildly successful until it burned down in 1865. It was rebuilt and burned again in 1868, and P.T. Barnum threw up his hands and went into circuses and politics. So, circuses, basically.. The American Museum was a combined zoo, museum, lecture hall, wax museum, freak show and theater. The famous Siamese twins, Chang and Eng, were featured there.. Hubers 14th Street Museum opened around 1890 (accounts vary) and offered a similar array of entertainment. This short article about the closing of Hubers in 1910 (to make way for a restaurant) gives a good sense of what the museum was like in its heyday.. There were a huge variety of human anomalies being displayed at dime museums and sideshows during this time. Lesser forms of freak included the Circassian beauty mentioned in the story, who was basically a pretty girl with frizzy hair. Leopard people were black ...

The last classic perfume house I visited in Paris was the Grasse-based Fragonard. The former Napoleon III town house on Rue Scribe holds a combined shop with a tiny museum. The museum was really not more than a three room apartment, but nevertheless my two enthusiastic and friendly guides made the visit very enjoyable. Inside the museum some instruments used in traditional perfumery were displayed. As we were looking at them the guides briefly explained the different extraction techniques like distillation, maceration and enfleurage. The following room housed a collection of perfume bottles and other bathroom accessories from ancient times to today; the highlight was the complete presentation of an antique vanity case, which basically was a moving makeup desk. The last part of the museum was dedicated to raw materials used in perfumery; there were a few samples available for the visitors to play the smell and guess game. A beautiful perfume organ marked the end of the tour, showing the path ...

Geological studies at MNA began with the founding of the museum in 1929. Museum founder and Director Dr. Harold S. Colton championed all research in natural history, including geology. Colton and his friend Lionel F. Major Brady established the tradition of geological research that continues today. Colton worked tirelessly on Sunset Crater and its preservation while Brady focused on the paleontology of the southern Colorado Plateau. Among other notable accomplishments, Brady collected the remarkable skeleton of a ground sloth that became a central item in the early exhibits maintained by the museum.. Dr. Edwin Eddie McKee became Assistant Director of MNA in 1941 and began a long-term research program on stratigraphy and structural geology of northern Arizona, including the Grand Canyon. McKees research became the foundation for modern studies on Grand Canyon geology that continue with vigor and controversy today. McKee officially resigned his position in 1953, and was replaced by Dr. John ...

I believe its harder to find new and better support systems for natural history collections than it is to find new economic models for other kinds of museums and other areas of operations. NEW INC and ACMI X are showing how museums can capitalize on space, expertise and reputation to create co-working spaces that generate new income streams (earned and philanthropic). Museum Hack has shown us that dynamic, irreverent, participatory tours can command a premium price. And Im morally convinced that museums are poised to capture some of the $18.4 billion in federal support for primary education (not to mention comparable private funds) as we show we can provide superior learning experiences. While it will take much work to inject ideas and approaches such as these into the mainstream, they can at least give paths to explore ...

One of the most important pieces of public art in Fargo-Moorheads history is headed for conservation. The iconic Sodbuster sculpture, which stood on the corner of Broadway and Main Avenue in Fargo for 20 years, will be conserved and reinstalled at the new Fargo City Hall Civic Plaza.. Twenty years of heat and cold, sun and snow, along with the vibrations from the nearby train traffic, resulted in significant damage to the sculptures surface as well as its structural integrity, said Mark Ryan, Director of Collections and Operations at Plains Art Museum.. Partnering with the city of Fargo, the museum applied for and was recently awarded a generous $143,000 grant secured from the Institute of Museum and Library Services through its Museums for America grant initiative that will fund the transportation, conservation and reinstallation of the sculpture.. The sculpture will be transported beginning Wednesday, Nov. 18, to McKay Lodge Conservation Laboratory in Oberlin, Ohio for a highly specialized ...
