After opening their new home in April, the University of Michigan Museum of Natural History will open its next major phase of permanent exhibits and programs to the public on Sunday, Nov. 10. The museum will have even more to explore with three new exhibits: an interactive journey through life’s building blocks in Under the Microscope, including a walk-in model of a cell; the Exploring Michigan gallery, highlighting our state’s natural history with life-size dioramas and hands-on activities; and People and the Planet, an in-depth look at how the natural world has shaped human culture and how humans impact our natural world. Also, two new public Investigate Labs, will lead visitors in scientific inquiry. In the Nature lab, guests will explore various natural phenomena in close detail. In the Micro Worlds lab, visitors will use microscopes to examine parts of our world that are too small to see with the naked eye.
