An unprecedented $13 million gift from The Otis Booth Foundation enabled the Museum to build a spectacular glass entrance pavilion for its new Nature Gardens. A magnificent, 63-foot fin whale specimen suspended inside in the Otis Booth Pavilion was unveiled at NHM's 100th anniversary festivities in June, 2013.
