Traveling Exhibitions

The Bell Museum of Natural History develops and circulates exhibitions on a broad range of topics. 

These exhibitions instill a greater appreciation of our natural world and promote a better understanding of contemporary ecological issues.

Although many are designed for small-to medium-sized spaces, these have traveled to museums of all sizes throughout the United States and Canada. Most require gallery installation, but several are self-supporting, lightweight, and easily assembled. These are ideal for bookings in either museum or non-museum settings, such as visitor centers, schools, and libraries.
