The Changing Role Of Natural History Museums
The Natural History Museum at the University of Kansas is restoring its iconic Panorama of North American Plants and Animals, a 360-degree display of wildlife from North America. The Panorama was originally created in 1893 by KU professor Lewis Lindsay Dyche for the Kansas Pavilion of the World's Columbian Exhibition of the World's Fair in Chicago.
On Tuesday's Central Standard, museum director Leonard Krishtalka discusses the changing role of natural history museums.
