As a public health precaution due to COVID-19, all Smithsonian museums are temporarily closed. We are not announcing a reopening date at this time and will provide updates on our websites and social media.
The Office of Communications & Public Affairs at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History is the official liaison for the news media. The office coordinates media coverage of exhibitions and scientific research at the Museum and can also provide story ideas, film footage, and still photographs. All requests to film at the Museum are facilitated by the Office of Communications & Public Affairs.
