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.
KPCC went behind the scenes to film in our "whale warehouse." It's where we store and research huge mammal skeletons.
