UM Museum of Natural History, 1109 Geddes Avenue, Ann Arbor MI 48109

From August 14-18 the third 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 shortly before the scheduled workshop dates. Previous topics include The Tree of Life (May), Geologic Time (June), and the Giant Walk-Through Cell (July).

The Exhibit Workshop will be open 9:00 AM-5:00 PM, Friday, August 14 through Tuesday, August 18  (Sunday Noon-5:00 PM).

Future workshops are scheduled for:

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