NYC is going to become home to dozens of sharks this winter…
And no, it isn’t because of a crazy migration pattern (though they have been spotted off NYC coasts before)! After the incredible new Hall of Rocks and Minerals, NYC’s iconic Museum of Natural History is opening their newest exhibit this winter dedicated to one of nature’s most misunderstood creatures: sharks.
The new exhibition, aptly named Sharks, will allow New Yorkers to “discover the incredible diversity of this ancient and fascinating group of fishes,” that are even older than dinosaurs!
Though not too many details of the exhibit have been revealed yet, Sharks will feature dozens of life-sized models ranging from 33 feet to 5 inches long, along with fossils from the Museum’s collections, and interactive exhibits that allow visitors to accomplish challenges and learn more about the group of fishes — like hunt like a hammerhead.
The exhibit will open December 15, but members can see it during previews starting December 10.
It will be on the third floor of Gallery 3, and timed entry will be required. Read more of their website here!
