Restoring Dioramas in Hall of North American Mammals

An expert team of conservators and Museum artists led a masterful restoration of the Hall of North American Mammals, which first opened in 1942 and has offered generations of Museum visitors spectacular views of North America's natural heritage. Here, in the iconic dioramas based on precise field observations, are scenes featuring the moose and brown bears of Alaska, cougars in the Grand Canyon, and the wolves of Gunflint Lake, Minnesota, among others. The restored Hall of North American Mammals reopens October 2012.CREDITS:PHOTOGRAPHY:AMNH ArchivesVIDEO:AMNH/J. Bauerle
