You can be part of history, literally, by attending the public opening of the Richard Gilder Center for Science, Education, and Innovation at the American Museum of Natural History.
The 230,000-square-foot Gilder Center will feature an immersive theater, an insectarium, a permanent butterfly vivarium where visitors can mingle with free-flying butterflies, a publicly accessible library, state-of-the classrooms, and more.
The Gilder Center links many of the museum’s buildings, creating a continuous campus across four city blocks, while providing one of the museum’s essential messages: that all life is connected.
