If you are a museum enthusiast eager to visit a new location, we have you covered. Here are some new scientific museums and exhibitions that have opened recently or are going to open soon.
This list of sites to visit includes something for everyone, whether you’re a history buff, space nerd, or an animal lover.
Grand Egyptian Museum
People celebrated the 100th anniversary of the discovery of King Tutankhamun’s tomb in 2022. Now, thousands of objects from the tomb, as well as additional archaeological discoveries from ancient Egypt, will be on exhibit at this museum, which is positioned within view of the Pyramids of Giza. After more than a decade of construction, it will be one of the world’s largest archaeological museums.
Richard Gilder Center for Science, Education and Innovation
New York City’s American Museum of Natural History
This multi-story structure will offer a substantial amount of extra display space to the almost 150-year-old museum. The insectarium features one of the largest exhibits of live leaf-cutting ants in the world, while the vivarium is home to dozens of butterfly species. Meanwhile, the interdependence of life will be displayed in an interactive, 360-degree installation titled “Invisible Worlds.”
Galápagos Islands Houston Zoo
If you are unable to travel to the Galápagos Islands, Texas may be the next best option. This new display will recreate the terrestrial and marine ecosystems of the island that were made famous by Charles Darwin. It will be inhabited by iguanas, penguins, giant tortoises, sharks, and sea lions, among others.
Kansas City Zoo Aquarium
This new aquarium’s 34 displays will allow visitors to experience a range of aquatic environments without leaving the Midwest. A warm intertidal zone will be home to sea urchins and sea anemones, fish will swim on a coral reef, comb jellies will float in the open ocean, and sea otters will frolic on a rocky coast.
Franklin Institute Philadelphia
In order to build this new two-story exhibition devoted to the future of space exploration, exhibit designers spoke with local kids and teachers to determine what information they want. The outcome is an experience that will, among other things, highlight the existing and future technology required to live and work in space, as well as the numerous job opportunities available in the aerospace sector.
Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.
The new bird house at the zoo will have three aviaries, with an emphasis on bird migration and conservation in the Americas: The first will explain how the Delaware Bay is an important refuelling area for migratory shorebirds, the second will show how seasonal wetlands in the Midwest benefit waterfowl, and the third will show how a tropical coffee field may provide winter refuge for songbirds.
