A group of New York City schoolchildren and American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) officials launched two Moveable Museums as they left on their first trip to Washington, D.C. The Moveable Museums, 37-foot-long customized recreational vehicles outfitted as exhibition spaces with specimens, videos, and interactive activities, will represented the Museum at the first-ever USA Science & Engineering Festival Expo on the National Mall on October 23-24.
The Moveable Museum fleet consists of four vehicles, The Paleontology of Dinosaurs, Structures & Culture, Discovering the Universe, and Dinosaurs: Ancient Fossils, New Discoveries, which carry the message and excitement of the Museum to schools, community centers, libraries, and community events throughout New York City and the region. The Moveable Museum Program provides focused museum experiences to more than 25,000 visitors every year, free of charge.
