American Museum of Natural History
The museum boasts that it has “one of the largest frog collections in the world,” and through January more than 20 species will be on display (alive, btw) in its “Frogs: A Chorus of Colors” exhibition. Like your animal exhibits to be about animals a little, um, larger? There’s the ongoing “Whales: Giants of the Deep,” where you’ll learn all about them, from their ancestors’ roots on land to the ways humans have revered these mammalian seamonsters. Think frogs and whales are both stupid? Try Jim des Rivières’s 30 large-format prints of moths, which involved “scanning each moth at high resolution to reveal unexpected colors and intricate patterns.” What!
