We're going under the sea for this week's episode of "Museum Minute", as VMNH Education Manager Christy Deatherage highlights the museum's display of sea urchins inside the Harvest Foundation Hall of Ancient Life!

Planning to visit the museum tomorrow? Be sure to stop by the Hall of Ancient Life this Saturday (4/10/21) for a special display table featuring additional sea urchins and other marine invertebrate specimens not normally on display inside the exhibits! The drop-by display is available from 10 to noon and 1 to 3 p.m. this Saturday and is included in the price of admission.

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 Partners Carter Bank & Trust (www.cbtcares.com) and Boxley Materials Company (www.boxley.com).
