The Origami Tree At The Museum Of Natural History Is The Craftiest Christmas Tree In NYC

This year, the origami tree at the Museum of Natural History is all about those under water critters.

The origami tree has been an annual tradition for more than 40 years and this holiday season, the ornaments (which are origami of course) go hand in hand with the theme of the year long “Unseen Oceans” exhibition. The origami models were inspired by the life forms at the expo. Stop by and see first hand over 800 hand-folded paper models created by local, national, and international origami artists. You can catch it until January 13.

And if you’re feeling in the mood to craft, volunteers will be there teaching the art of paper folding to visitors of all ages!

It’s a great experience for friends, dates and most especially, families with young kids.
