Old Bones. New Home.
After migrating to its new home, the U-M Museum of Natural History will reopen on April 14. Embedded among the labs in the new Biological Sciences Building, the museum doesn't just preserve the past; it also shows off the latest in scientific research with interactive exhibits, new programming spaces, and a state-of-the-art Planetarium & Dome Theater!
