Collecting Evidence: Specimens & Artifacts That Demonstrate Climate Change

April 19 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Check out rarely displayed artifacts from three institutions and find out what they tell us about the changes in our world.

Co-presented with the Penn Museum and the Mütter Museum

All ages

Museums in Philadelphia comprise literally millions of specimens, artifacts and documents in their diverse and important collections. How do scientists and researchers use these collections to demonstrate a changing world? From skulls to diaries to snails, every museum object helps tell the story. Check out rarely displayed artifacts from three institutions that all show, in different ways, how the world has changed, how we know that it has and how we can all be better citizens.

While this program welcomes guests of all ages, we recommend adult guidance for children due to the sensitive nature of some of the specimens we may explore. For more information, please contact Mary Bailey, Youth and Family Programs Developer,
