The Natural History Museum is a traveling pop-up museum that also organizes exhibitions inside museums, motivating them to act not as shrines to a civilization in decline, but as agents of change. Working with artists, activists, Native Nations, scientists and museum professionals, the museum inquires into what we see, how we see and what remains excluded. Join members of Not An Alternative—a collective of artists, activists, cultural organizers and critical theorists that initiated The Natural History Museum—to ask how new interpretations of cultural and environmental heritage can arise from connecting climate justice and land rights movements to the history of museums and the legacy of colonialism.
