Hall of Ocean Life

Hall of Ocean Life

Come visit the blue whale in the Museum‘s beloved Milstein Family Hall of Ocean Life. Current scientific research and cutting-edge exhibition technology combine to create a fully immersive marine environment with video projections, interactive computer stations, and newly restored ocean dioramas.

The hall is still dominated by the famous blue whale model, which now floats in a virtual ocean created through dramatic lighting, video, and sound effects. The classic dioramas on the lower level, such as those that depict the Andros coral reef, and school of leaping dolphins, and northern sea lions from Alaska‘s Pribiloff Island, have been meticulously restores. The mezzanine level of the hall features eight new exhibits on the major ocean ecosystems, which together with tow new Spectrum of Life walls, highlight the extraordinary diversity of marine life.

Location: American Museum of Natural History, Central Park West and 79th St., New York
