The KU Natural History Museum offers four floors of exhibits that explore the life of the planet. Toothy mosasaurs will open your imagination to the Cretaceous seas of 85 million years ago. Throughout the museum you will discover the animals and plants of the Great Plains, including birds, snakes, and mammals from prairie dogs to moose. In Bugtown, you’ll meet a few six-legged critters. Explore Evolution introduces you to the work of scientists making leading discoveries in the diversity of life, from tiny diatoms to humpback whales. Plus, you can buzz in to see the live bee colony.
