New video series -Shelf Life- exhibits 33 million artifacts and specimens at the @AMNH!!

The American Museum of Natural History has a new video exhibit series showcasing 33,430,000 artifacts and specimens. Here is the first episode! More info the AMNH website here.

Shelf Life Episode 1 – 33 Million Things

From centuries-old specimens to entirely new types of specialized collections like frozen tissues and genomic data, the Museum’s scientific collections (with more than 33,000,000 specimens and artifacts) form an irreplaceable record of life on Earth, the span of geologic time, and knowledge about our vast universe.

Shelf Life is a collection for curious minds—opening doors, pulling out drawers, and taking the lids off some of the incredible, rarely-seen items in the American Museum of Natural History.
Over the next year, Shelf Life will explore topics like specimen preparation, learn why variety is vital, and meet some of the people who work in the Museum collections. The first episode premieres November 13, 2014, and videos roll out monthly.
