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 ...
beeps - electronic lock and vault door opening]. Dr. Biology: This episode of Ask a Biologist, is being pulled from our special collections that have been stored in our secret vault.. This is Ask a Biologist, a program about the living world and Im Dr. Biology.. If you think of or maybe even have visited a science museum lately, you probably got to see some pretty cool stuff. The question is, Who collects all that stuff and what else do they do with the stuff, other than put it out for the visitors to come see?. My guest scientist should be able to give us a pretty good idea of whats going on behind the scenes of museums. Richard Fortey is paleontologist who calls the British Natural History Museum home. In fact, hes written a book about the topic called, Dry Store Room Number One, The Secret Life of the Natural History Museum. Welcome to Ask a Biologist, Richard Fortey..

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.. The museum was closed in 2012 as the Canadian Museum of Civilization began to prepare to transition into the Canadian History Museum. The Postal Museum collections, now in storage, are managed by the Canadian Museum of Civilization Corporation, a federal Crown Corporation that is also responsible for the Canadian Museum of Civilization, the Canadian War Museum, the Canadian Childrens Museum, and the Virtual Museum of New France.[2] The postal collection is being broken up. According to the Canadian Museum of Civilization, Many [artifacts] will be included in the new Canadian history gallery, to be completed in 2017. The national stamp collection, Reflections of Canada - The National Stamp Collection, will be moved to a new gallery, to ...

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 ...

There is something for everyone this season at Koshland. Make a quantum leap beyond the usual science museum experience and attend a public program this summer!
December 14, 2009 - WASHINGTON - Beginning in January, the Marian Koshland Science Museum is offering several public programs and free science cafés that explore a wide range of topics, from identity theft to the U.S. Census to viruses such as influenza and AIDS. The public programs will take place at the Koshland Science Museum; the science cafés will be held at Busboys and Poets. A schedule of events follows.
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 ...
|p|Our Museum: Communities and Museums as Active Partners was a Paul Hamlyn Foundation Special Initiative 2012 - 2016.

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 ...

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 ...

The palatial National Museum building used to be the home of a Portuguese royal family. Almost exactly 200 years ago, it was converted into a museum.. Since then, the National Museum has become Brazils oldest historical institution and an internationally prominent research center.. Two hundred years of work, research and knowledge were lost, President Temer said after the fire. Its a sad day for all Brazilians.. The museum housed 20 million artifacts in areas such as biological anthropology, archeology, ethnology, geology, paleontology and zoology, according to its website .. One of the museums most famous artifacts is known as Luzia, the skull and bones of a 25-year-old woman who died more than 11,000 years ago. They are the oldest remains ever discovered in Brazil, the museums website says.. The largest meteorite ever found in Brazil is also housed in the museum. It weighs 5.36 tons and was found in 1784.. Other rare exhibits include thousands of works from the pre-Colombian era, ...

To start, Schechter is raising money and testing some of her initial concepts. In May, the Vagina Museum will present its first comedy night at a converted warehouse event space in London, and Schechter is starting work on what she hopes will be the museums first travelling exhibit, which will focus on basic anatomy and health. The Eve Appeal, a gynecological cancer research charity, conducted a survey of British women and found that only half of young British woman could locate a vagina on a diagram; the first job of the Vagina Museum may be simply to educate people with vaginas (regardless of gender identity) about their own bodies.. Creating a museum from scratch is a monumental task and can take years. The penis museum in Iceland began casually, as a collection of animal penises that grew over decades, until its owner decided to display his specimens more formally. Schechter has never worked in a museum, let alone started one. I read loads of guides from the association of museums, and ...

The best known and most impressive of the five museums is undoubtedly the Pergamon Museum. It is primarily known for the examples of ancient architecture such as the Pergamon Altar, the Ishtar Gate from Babylon, the Market Gate of Miletus and the Mshatta Facade. The enthusiasm for these highlights in the previous reviews is absolutely justified. But there is much more to see. I was very impressed by the collection of Islamic art (e.g. the Aleppo Room, photo). Even if you only take a look at the highlights of the museum, you can easily spend half a day there. In October 2009, the reconstruction of the Neues Museum (by David Chipperfield) was completed and now, for the first time since WWII, all five museums are open for the public. Neues Museum shows the famous Nefertiti bust, but I was even more enthusiastic with the renovated museum. The building was severely damaged during the WWII and Chipperfield rebuilt it in its original shape. The original remains were preserved and irretrievably lost ...

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 ...

The interesting part is that it will be a semi-blind reception of the odoriferous craftmanship that is ingrained in the 10 fragrances presented: the viewers will be smelling the scents in identical canisters, devoid of the outer characteristics and only demarcated by name, perfumer and year of creation; this idea is carried on to the exhibition catalogue that will offer 10 identical sample vials of the perfumes presented alongside essays by Chandler Burr. His goal? My goal for this exhibition is to transform the ways in which people respond to scent artists and their art. The works presented in this exhibition are ones that have each had a profound impact on the history of this artistic medium. These works include Jicky, Chanel No.5, Fracas, Eau dIssey, Angel and Pleasures.. ...
AUSTIN, Texas-The Harry Ransom Centers exhibition The Greenwich Village Bookshop Door: A Portal to Bohemia, 1920-1925 showcases how one artifact, in this case a door from a Greenwich Village bookshop in the 1920s, can serve as a starting point to reconstruct the history of a time and place..

Jason Poole, who oversees the lab and has participated in dinosaur digs around the world, says the fossils were unearthed in Wyoming in 2011 by a team from the New Jersey State Museum in Trenton. Scientists already know the fossils belong to a 25-foot-long, duck-billed, plant-eating dinosaur that lived 67 to 70 million years ago. Its of the hadrosaur family, the same family as the famous Hadrosaurus foulkii, the worlds first nearly complete dinosaur, which the Academy displayed in 1868 as the worlds first mounted dinosaur.. But scientists wont know what species of hadrosaur the mystery dinosaur is until they can fully see and examine the fossils. Even though they have found only a small portion of the dinosaur, scientists are confident they will be able to identify it, especially since they have parts of the skull, which often is not recovered.. From neck to tail, all hadrosaurids look alike, Poole says. But we have a good bit of the skull, which makes it a lot easier to identify the ...
The best thing about Milan Design Week is using the satellite exhibitions as a premise for exploring the city and seeing spaces you might typically miss. In this gallery we clustered highlights from group shows seen at Spazio Rossana Orlandi, La Triennale di Milano, and Tom Dixons MOST exhibition at the National Museum of Science and Technology.. Tom Dixons contribution (both as curator and exhibitor) at design weeks in London, Milan, and New York increases every year, but more importantly his exhibitions serve to champion the role of the industrial designer. This years lighting exhibition simply titled Luminosity revealed the process behind minimizing material waste, demonstrated the digital fabrication technology-literally, and pointed to the shifting marketplace where large-scale manufacturers are interfacing directly with their end customer.. Other big names doing some interesting work included Ross Lovegrove with his new architectural glass laminate venture LiquidKristal in partnership ...
