National Museum of the Bahamas Opens First Natural History Exhibit

On January 3, 2018, the National Museum of The Bahamas / Antiquities, Monuments and Museum Corporation (AMMC) officially opened its first natural history exhibit to an audience of scientists, government officials and environmental stakeholders.

The culmination of over a decade of research, the exhibit highlights the rich history of discovery, science and research in the field of natural history in The Bahamas. Plans are for it to develop as a dynamic display, reflecting the latest discoveries and research.

Some of the Museum’s key displays include archaeological finds, such as remains of The Bahamas’ first inhabitants – the Lucayans – geological marvels, such as Abaco’s blue holes and caves, fossils of prehistoric Bahamian species, such as crocodiles and tortoise, videos and educational presentations.
