This Sunday marks the opening of the newly restored historic 1913 Building at the Natural History Museum. A long time in waiting, the opening of the building, along with three exhibits, is the first to come out in a five-year project that is expected to take the museum to new levels.

"While we have lovingly restored our original home, the 1913 Building, we have also provided a very modern renovation of its public and exhibition spaces to let in more light, expose the beauty of the structure, and develop more amenities for visitors," said said Dr. Jane Pisano, president and director of the Museum.
