Nov 18, 2017 - ongoing

Unshelved offers a rare chance to see more than 200 specimens—beautiful and bizarre, big and small—from the Museum’s collection. Many of the objects have never been on public display.  It’s a rare “backstage” glimpse of the Museum’s storage areas. Arranged on shelves and in cases, Unshelved gives visitors the opportunity to revel in the natural world in all its beauty and strangeness.
