Gonna find some animals, gonna put them in my play

The American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) has made available for download historical photographs of its permanent and temporary exhibits.[...]

Perhaps the most interesting from the catalog are the ones showing the museum staff preparing these exhibits. You see landscape facsimiles in various stages of recreation; creatures undressed or nearly dressed; ethology imprinted on a three-dimensional canvas; and exterior habitats crammed into architectural spaces.
