Since its opening in 1936, the hall has been considered one of the world's great museum displays with 28 dioramas in this hall depicting some of the many animals and habitats of Africa. All the animals have been reconstructed with such scientific accuracy and detail that they appear astoundingly lifelike.

Spitzer Hall of Human
Origins Opened in 2007, it is the first major exhibition to present, side by side, the mutually reinforcing evidence of the fossil record and cutting-edge DNA research. The hall covers millions of years of human history, from the emergence of our earliest ancestors through the evolution of our own species. It presents a fascinating mix of fossils, film, interactive media, life-size tableaux, ancient artifacts, and more.
