The University of Michigan Museum of Natural History re-opens April 14 in its new location, the Biological Sciences Building at 1105 North University Ave. in Ann Arbor.

With see and touch opportunities along the way, even a T. Rex skull can be examined closely. Several exhibits, and the theater, will open April 14 with hours 9m-5pm daily, with hours extended to 8pm on Thursdays. Additional exhibits will open in Nov.
