May 10, 2023 | NYC Today, Week, Weekend

1. Visit the Brand New Gilder Center @ AMNH

Visit the brand new Gilder Center @ American Museum of Natural History. The Richard Gilder Center for Science, Education, and Innovation creates more than 30 connections among 10 of the Museum’s buildings to improve visitor circulation on campus and adds 230,000 square feet to the already huge museum. Some of the areas and exhibits include Susan and Peter J. Solomon Family Insectarium, Louis V. Gerstner, Jr. Collections Core, Davis Family Butterfly Vivarium (separate ticket required), Invisible Worlds Immersive Experience and much more.

At dusk, the curved windows of the Richard Gilder Center for Science, Education, and Innovation exude an inviting soft glow. From this vantage point in the renovated section of Theodore Roosevelt Park, the Gilder Center can be viewed in the context of the Museum’s existing campus, visible just beyond the Gilder Center’s gently undulating façade.

From AMNH: "The Gilder Center embodies the Museum’s mission of science and education in every way—from sparking curiosity and wonder through new exhibits in strikingly designed spaces to providing new facilities where research collections, exhibitions, and learning are situated in close proximity, reinforcing the central role of natural history collections in scientific discovery and providing deeper experiences that connect visitors to the evidence and processes of science through engaging exhibits and programs. At the same time, the new building also enhances the visitor experience by establishing continuous pathways through its four-block campus, connecting buildings that were constructed over the course of nearly 150 years."
