On Saturday, October 27, the American Museum of Natural History is re-opening one of its greatest treasures: the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial.
The recently restored two-story Memorial — which includes the iconic Central Park West façade, Theodore Roosevelt Rotunda, and Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Hall — serves as New York State’s official memorial to its 33rd Governor and the nation’s 26th President. The Hall includes a new exhibition charting Roosevelt’s journey from budding naturalist to an elected leader committed to conservation.
Long before he was President and placed some 230 million acres of land under federal protection, Roosevelt was a boy whose father helped to found this Museum.

The museum and wing have a wonderful collection thanks to the Roosevelt’s.
