From July 10-23, and monthly through the rest of the year, the Temporary Exhibit Gallery on the fourth floor of the U-M Museum of Natural History will be transformed into The Exhibit Workshop. In this space, the Museum will be testing out ideas for exhibits for the new Museum of Natural History in the Biological Science Building, now under construction north of the Museum's current home in the Ruthven Museums Building.

Visitors are invited to see the plans and contribute their comments in this informal, interactive, pop-up style workshop setting. Each workshop will have a different exhibit topic, to be determined and posted on the Museum's website (ummnh.org) shortly before the scheduled workshop dates. Previous topics include The Tree of Life (May) and Geologic Time (June).

This month we'll be mocking up a giant, walk-through cell. Visitors can explore the cell membrane, see the different parts of the cell, and learn about their function through various proposed activities.

Future workshops are scheduled for:

August 14-18
September 18-22
October 9-13
November 13-17
December 11-15
