The newest exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History - Whales: Giants of the Deep will transport visitors to the vibrant underwater world of the mightiest animals on Earth.
The exhibition explores the latest research about these marine mammals as well as the central role they have played for thousands of years in human cultures.
Visitors will learn about the traditions of New Zealand’s Maori whale riders and the Kwakwaka’wakw peoples of the Pacific Northwest along with the international whaling industry.
There will be plenty of interactive exhibits, from a re-created dive to the depths of the sea with a sperm whale on the hunt for a giant squid, be able to crawl through a life-size replica of the heart of the blue whale—the largest living animal on the planet and listen to whale croons.
