Museum: Natural History Museum
Location: 2nd Floor, Northwest Wing, Special Exhibit Gallery (Hall 25)
To mark the museum's 100th birthday, this exhibition highlights the behind-the-scenes research that advances scientific knowledge and inspires the museum's public educational programs. Over the last century, scientists have used technological advances in photography to see farther, deeper, and in more detail than ever before. On view are photographs, both old and new, that show how these researchers have relied on photography to document their findings and to reveal the natural world that lies hidden to the naked eye.
