Decorative trees have been a holiday staple since the 18th century. For more than 30-years, the American Museum of Natural History has been showcasing its one-of-a-kind Holiday Origami Tree and this year is no different. Starting Nov. 25, attendees can view the stunning tree; as it celebrates the museum’s new exhibit, “The Power of Poison.”
The Holiday Origami Tree is a highly anticipated tradition at the American Museum of Natural History. The gorgeous tree is adorned with 500 handmade creations. This year, in honor of “The Power of Poison” exhibit, the tree’s theme is Wicked, Wild and Wonderful.
Each origami creation displayed on the tree was fashioned back in July, by a seasoned volunteer. This holiday season, volunteers will be on hand to teach visitors, of all ages, how to make origami creations.
Museum-goers can view the stunning tree beginning on Nov. 25 through Jan. 12, 2014. Admission tickets can be purchased in advance via the museum’s official website. Tickets range from $12.50 to $22.
The American Museum of Natural History is located at Central Park West on the Upper West Side in NY. The Origami Holiday Tree exhibit is located at the Grand Gallery, near the 77th Street exit on the Museum's first floor.
