Breaking Ground on the Richard Gilder Center for Science, Education and Innovation

We were thrilled to be a part of this amazing day for the official start and ground breaking of the new Richard Gilder Center for Science, Education and Innovation! This is a new addition to the American Museum of Natural History which will give the opportunity for visitors to see 4 million scientific specimens as well as provide access state of the art theater, research library and classrooms.

This new addition will help to elevate the museums constantly growing activity while raising awareness for climate change and biodiversity. The overall project will be 5 floors, 230,000 sq ft costing approximately $383 million dollars. Its goal is to give visitors of all ages the chance to look at current research and inventive learning zones.

The Gilder Center is a non-profit organization with the help of Richard Gilder, co-founder of the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History and is chairman at the New York Historical Society, who serves on the executive board of the Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture among many more prestigious organizations. Along with the Gilder Center, Richard Gilder created a PhD program at the museum in comparative biology as well as a Master of Arts in Science Teaching.
