ABOUT THE NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM (http://​then​at​u​ral​his​to​ry​mu​seum​.org/​a​b​o​ut/)
Launched in Sep­tem­ber, 2014, The Nat­ural His­tory Museum is a mobile and pop-​​up museum that offers exhi­bi­tions, expe­di­tions, edu­ca­tional work­shops, and pub­lic pro­gram­ming. Unlike tra­di­tional nat­ural his­tory muse­ums, it makes a point to include and high­light the socio-​​political forces that shape nature.

The museum’s pro­grams appear within estab­lished art, sci­ence and nat­ural his­tory muse­ums, in its 15-​​passenger mobile museum bus, and online at http://​then​at​u​ral​his​to​ry​mu​seum​.org. The Nat­ural His­tory Museum is a mem­ber of the Amer­i­can Alliance of Muse­ums and the Asso­ci­a­tion of Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy Cen­ters. The museum is a project of Not An Alter­na­tive, a col­lec­tive of artists, sci­en­tists, his­to­ri­ans, the­o­rists, and activists.
