Picturing the Museum is an exhibition from the American Museum of Natural History in New York consisting of archival images that follow the history of the museum’s exhibits and events (dioramas, education, exhibition, and exhibition prep). Educational and non-commercial use of these wonderful photographs is allowed under certain restrictions – see the website’s Conditions of Use. The types of photos vary widely, from exhibit closeups to school children’s visits to artists at work. Above, museum staff clean an elephant skin (photographed by Thane L. Bierwert in June 1933).
