Welcome to the Online Art Gallery! The Animal History Museum plans to make its virtual art gallery an important part of its mission – both as a way of giving you, our guest, a taste of what the brick-and-mortar museum will offer once it opens – as well as growing along side it once the museum opens its doors as a vibrant, integral complement to our physical collections.
Like our brick-and-mortar plans, the online art gallery will feature both permanent collections as well as rotating exhibits. We believe it to be the first permanent, virtual museum collection dedicated to all things animal anywhere in the world. We look forward to growing this collection in the years to come and hope you will enjoy visiting frequently to see what’s new!
