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.
