Nature’s Superheroes

: Life at the Limits

Temporary Exhibit : Open Through May 5

Many extraordinary species have developed unique (and often weird!) “superpowers” to overcome the challenges threatening their survival. This captivating temporary exhibition lets you discover bizarre mating serenades, explore a mysterious cave environment where animals live without eyes, and investigate how a giant elephant seal can hold its breath for nearly two hours while diving a mile to find food.

Nature’s Superheroes: Life at the Limits offers a fascinating lens on the breathtaking diversity of the natural world and the incredible power of evolution to shape exceptional responses to the challenges, and opportunities, of life on Earth. Multi-sensory experiences, immersive scenic displays, and hands-on interactive components bring exceptional creatures to life!

Nature’s Superheroes: Life at the Limits is organized by the American Museum of Natural History, New York.
