Wander through the displays of gems and minerals, including the Dom Pedro Aquamarine, the worlds largest gem of its type, which glows brilliantly from within. Travel back in time to learn about death rituals while exploring real mummies from Ancient Egypt. Then step out of the past into the wild, exploring the mighty polar bears, elephants, and giraffes that roam across earths surface. From the land, jump into the sea at the Ocean Hall, where youll discover a live coral reef exhibit as well as a 45-ton whale, Phoenix, which is a replica of a real living what that the museum tracks.
