NHM's celebrated diorama halls capture nature in painstaking detail. They each portray breathtakingly realistic scenes of wildlife in their natural habitats, whether it's a herd of moose in Alaska, a polar bear family in the frozen Arctic, a herd of elephants in Africa, or hippos snoozing by a pond.
Not only are these dioramas iconic for their captivating presence at the Museum, but also for their contributions to pop culture—from Sheryl Crow's "If It Makes You Happy" music video, to Honda's "Matthew Broderick's Day Off" commercial.
Now, we challenge you to recreate the magic at home.
The concept is simple: we are challenging our participants to recreate our classic diorama scenes with items found at home. To participate, all you have to do is:
