Since 2014, we’ve made the biggest move of our lives as we’ve relocated 4.3 million artifacts and specimens from the research collections into a new state-of-the-art home. This opened up 22,000 square feet in the heart of the Museum, which is now ready and waiting for an all-encompassing, mind-blowing experience to burst onto the scene.
Enter Future First. The moment you walk through our doors, it’s going to get a little eclectic, kind of nerdy, and a bit amazing as we explore nature, science, and the world around us in completely unexpected and magical ways. To do this, we’re gaining insights from community feedback to create truly spectacular moments that originate from some of the biggest ideas in science and nature—capturing, engaging, and propelling curious hearts and minds in ways that are meaningful to them, right through our front doors. Come on in, we’re so happy you’re here.
