Free for Members or with Museum admission
Inspired by the legacy of Theodore Roosevelt, the Museum celebrates the importance of natural history collections by inviting visitors to bring in their own specimens to our annual Identification Day. Bring your shells, rocks, insects, feathers, bones, and artifacts to be identified by Museum scientists and explore rarely seen objects from the Museum’s collection. Scientists will attempt to identify your discoveries and provide a certificate of identification. Items identified in previous years have included a whale jawbone, a green-beetle bracelet from Brazil, and a 5,000-year-old stone spear point from Morocco.
For additional information, call 212-769-5100 or visit the Museum’s website at amnh.org.
