Food: Our Global Kitchen
May 31 to Sept. 1, 2014

Go on food-filled adventures while exploring the global food system that brings what we eat from farm to fork. Taste treats, cook a virtual meal, and see rare artifacts and the dining rooms of famous figures. Hands-on activities for kids, tours and after-hours programs explore local culinary traditions. Organized by the American Museum Natural History, New York (www.amnh.org).

RACE:  Are We So Different
Sept. 20, 2014 to Jan. 4, 2015

Developed by the American Anthropological Association in collaboration with the Science Museum of Minnesota.

The 1968 Exhibit
Feb. 7 to May 10, 2015
