While the Museum has closed its buildings during the COVID-19 outbreak, our work continues. We're here to help you explore our exhibits and other resources from home—and we look forward to welcoming you back as soon as we can. Visit amnh.org/health-safety for updates.
Scientists at Home: Reptiles and Amphibians
Watch live this Thursday, May 21, at 2 pm ET, as Museum herpetologists Lauren Vonnahme and Arianna Kuhn share exciting facts about the snakes and frogs that live with them at home. They’ll also field questions and identify critters: just send a photo of a reptile or amphibian you’d like to have identified, along with your location, to firstname.lastname@example.org. You don’t need a Facebook account to join the Watch Party. Watch on Facebook

Coins may seem like everyday objects, but they can tell archaeologists a lot about the people who use them. For this week’s OLogy Challenge, an at-home activity for students from the Museum’s science website for kids, create your piece of history by making your own coin. Then, submit your work for a chance to be featured on the Museum’s website! The challenge begins Wednesday, May 20. Take the Challenge
