This month's issue of Cultural News features the University of Michigan Museum of Natural History which opened the doors to its spectacular new home in the campus’s Biological Sciences Building. “This is not a traditional bones-and-stones natural history museum—although it does have plenty of both,” says Maria Piacente Lord’s lead on this project. “Everyone agreed that we were going to elevate the visitor experience, and find new ways to tell stories about our planet. Working with a tier-one research institution also meant we had a rare opportunity to connect the public directly to the very latest ideas in the natural sciences.”View All News
