At this year’s open house, visitors met museum staff from the Auburn University Natural History Museum (AUNMH), which features more than two million specimens in 10 collections.

Visitors toured both floors of the museum and viewed different specimens.  Staff explained the importance of the items in the collection and shared the message of conservation.

Throughout the day’s event, both adults and children could interact with live animal demonstrations including snakes, lizards and other reptiles.
