The American Museum of Natural History is one of the world’s preeminent scientific and cultural institutions. Since its founding in 1869, the Museum has advanced its global mission to discover, interpret, and disseminate information about human cultures, the natural world, and the universe through a wide-ranging program of scientific research, education, and exhibition. The Museum is renowned for its exhibitions and scientific collections, which serve as a field guide to the entire planet and present a panorama of the world's cultures.
The AMNH has been featured in many different movies, including the kid-centric comedy Night At the Museum featuring Ben Stiller. Although the interior scenes in the movie were not filmed at the AMNH, the movie has helped to attract visitors, especially younger ones, to the museum. The AMNH now offers the Night at the Museum Tour, during which visitors can check out the exhibitions featured in the movie.
