Featured Exhibit: Our Global Kitchen: Food, Nature, Culture
Located in the Harvest Pavilion
Over the centuries, humans have shaped the crops we grow and the animals we raise to suit our needs, creating countless varieties adapted to local conditions.
Taking visitors on a journey around the world and through time, this exhibition explores the common interactions we have with our food, examining the intricate system that brings what we eat from the farm to our tables. Through digital interactives, rich dioramas, cultural artifacts, and striking models, visitors will experience stories of how humans have shaped the foods we know, and how food has shaped us.
Our Global Kitchen: Food, Nature, Culture is organized by the American Museum of Natural History, New York (www.amnh.org).
