Beavers take the spotlight in this week's "Museum Minute" presented by Carter Bank & Trust!

If you plan to visit the museum this Saturday, be sure to stop by the Harvest Foundation Hall of Ancient Life for a special, beaver-themed activity table presented by the VMNH education team! VMNH educators will be on hand to present a special display of specimens, such as a beaver fur, skull, and "chews" (trees that have been cut down by beavers), while teaching visitors about the lives and habitats of these semiaquatic rodents!

This drop-by activity is included in the price of admission and is available any time from 10 a.m. to noon and and 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, January 23. We hope to see you here!

The Virginia Museum of Natural History has a spectacular assortment of displays within its exhibit galleries! Some displays are unforgettable, while others don't always get the attention they deserve. Through the original series "Museum Minute", museum educators highlight various displays throughout the exhibit galleries, while providing intriguing facts you may not have known.

"Museum Minute" is made possible thanks to VMNH Corporate Partner Carter Bank & Trust.
