ORIGAMI HOLIDAY TREE HERALDS THE SEASON AT THE AMERICAN MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY
January 3 EST
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until January 10, 2021
An annual Museum tradition, the delightfully decorated Origami Tree is opening to the public on Wednesday, Nov. 25 and will welcome visitors to the Museum throughout the holiday season.
The theme of this year’s 13-foot tree is Cranes and Colors, featuring one thousand brilliantly colored origami cranes presented as symbols of peace and good wishes as New York continues to endure the many challenges posed by COVID-19; and drawing inspiration from The Nature of Color special exhibition that explores the role and power of color in the natural world and in ourselves. The tree – which is the 49th Origami Tree, continuing a Museum tradition started in 1973 – also features hundreds of other models relating to the Museum’s exhibitions, collections and icons. Visit amnh.org for additional details about Origami Tree highlights.
Attendance in the Museum continues to be limited to 25% of normal capacity to allow ample room for physical distancing, providing a unique, intimate opportunity for visitors to view the Origami Tree, and reacquaint themselves with such beloved Museum icons as the blue whale, T. rex or Titanosaur. Advance ticket reservations are required and available now on amnh.org or through the Museum’s Explorer app.
WHEN – Wednesday, Nov. 25 – Sunday, Jan. 10
