The Bell Museum is home to internationally-renowned natural history dioramas. They have a long legacy and will be a key, and vibrant part of the new Bell Museum facility.
What is a diorama?
It's a three-dimensional model representing a scene frozen in time. Dioramas show the ecological interactions of animals and their habitats, serving as portals to experiences that bring people closer to the natural world. Those at the Bell are among the best examples of museum displays that do this, and they help us serve young and old alike as they seek to find—and better understand and appreciate—their own place in a living, changing world.
