AU to let public in to the Museum of Natural History

Posted: Updated:

Auburn University's Museum of Natural History is opening its doors to the public.

The museum is set to host an open house on Saturday, October 12th from 9am-12pm at the new Biodiversity Learning Center, located between Rouse Life Sciences Building and M. White Smith Hall.

According to a news release, "The Biodiversity Learning Center is the new home for the Auburn University Museum of Natural History, which features collections of specimens representing the rich history of Alabama, the Southeast and beyond. Sponsored by the College of Sciences and Mathematics, the museum is used primarily by Auburn University professors and students and well as researchers from around the world conducting biodiversity research. Periodically, museum curators will extend the collections beyond campus and provide specimens to outside researchers and K-12 outreach programs. However, the museum is not ordinarily open to the public."

There will be giveaways and live animal demonstrations.
