Climate at the Museum
Explore Earth’s weather
Experience the science behind Earth’s climate
Climate is weather measured over many years. And while day-to-day weather patterns definitely impact our lives, scientists observe and research climate to better understand past, present, and future conditions for humans and all life here on Earth.
From disappearing freshwater mollusks at the Collectors’ Corner to lake core samples in Science Superheroes, these exhibits and experiences show how climate matters in big and small ways.
