This year, the 13-foot-tall origami tree at the Museum of Natural History is all about our favorite prehistoric creature: the T. rex!
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 “T. rex: The Ultimate Predator” exhibition. The exhibit uses life-sized models, fossils and casts, and interactive displays to share the iconic dino’s amazing story and history — which these origami models were definitely inspired by.
Stop in and see over 800 hand-folded paper models first hand, created by local, national and international origami artists. You can catch it until January 12.
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.
You can find more information on the American Museum of Natural History website.
