The American Museum of Natural History in New York has brought the wonders of the natural world to life, with over 150 magnificent dioramas, for countless millions of visitors. This program details how these remarkable displays were made and focuses on some of the iconic dioramas found in the Bernard Family Hall of North American Mammals. Long before the age of television, iPads and other electronic devices, these exhibits were the original “virtual reality” displays. Then and now, they allow viewers to enter a world filled with wonder, spanning hundreds, even thousands of miles across the globe. Dr. Bill Thierfelder, a visiting docent/guide at the Museum, shares his life-long passion for these astonishing works of art and science.
