Museum of Natural History Celebrates 30 Years
The Museum of Natural History & Science is celebrating its 30th anniversary with a year's worth of special exhibits and events. They kicked off the festivities by announcing an affiliation with the Smithsonian Institution, who helped bring the Post Diamond Tiara to New Mexico as a special exhibit at the museum (still running). The new partnership means we'll be able to see some of the same exhibits seen in Washington D.C. The museum also recently celebrated the opening of the new STEM education wing, a task that has taken six years to see completion.
