Take a virtual safari through Africa by exploring majestic dioramas of African landscapes. Lions and cheetahs face off with zebras and antelope through the glass windows of their detailed displays, and a lowland gorilla invites you to ponder your ancestry.
Trace the milestones of our species' fascinating history in Human Odyssey. Compare fossils of early human relatives, walk alongside a computer animation of the famous "Lucy" skeleton, map our species' extensive journey across the world, and follow the clues that scientists use to investigate our past.
Look closely as you wander through the hall—the dioramas contain a few surprises too: live tortoises, lizards, and fish occupy some of the smaller displays, and a colony of African Penguins dip and dive in a 25,000-gallon tank at the end of the hall.
