About KU Natural History Museum

At the KU Natural History Museum we study the life of the planet for the benefit of the earth and its inhabitants. As a part of the KU Biodiversity Institute, we are at the forefront of biodiversity research — discovering, documenting, and disseminating knowledge of life on earth, past and present.

The museum offers gallery activities and hands-on science workshops for school groups, public science events and summer camps for young people. Annually, about 50,000 people visit the museum's exhibit galleries in Dyche Hall on KU's Lawrence campus. The exhibits include birds, mammals, live snakes, a working bee hive, Bug Town, Explore Evolution, dinosaurs and fossils, the world's largest diorama, and Comanche, a horse that survived the battle of Little BigHorn.
