Fossil Hall Sends Forceful Message about Climate Change

The Washington Post reports that the museum's revamped fossil hall "is a radically new kind of natural history exhibition."

As Kirk Johnson, Sant Director of the National Museum of Natural History, puts it, "Paleontology is the backstory to what's happening today. We have a responsibility to present that science to the nation ... and to make clear the implications for the future."


Megalodon: Prehistoric Monster of the Deep

Visitors entering the museum's newly renovated café can feast under a life-sized model of a prehistoric shark known as C. megalodon. Don't worry - the creature lived millions of years ago, so humans aren't on the menu.
