Museums, Science & the Environment

There are several types of museums that explore science and the natural environment.

Natural History & Natural Science Museums acquire, preserve, research and exhibit collections of objects that have significance in the natural sciences including botany, zoology, geology and physical and cultural anthropology.

Science & Technology Museums develop and maintain educational exhibits that illustrate principles from mathematics and the physical sciences.

Children's Museums develop and maintain educational exhibits that are structured for the size, interests and intellectual capacity of young children. Childrens museums are participatory and allow visitors to interact with the exhibits (touching, exploring, manipulating), and many offer organized lessons for groups of school children that focus on one or more of the exhibits.
