. March 31, 2019.

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. The museum, formerly housed in the Ruthven Building, closed in December 2017, has reinvented itself in the new $261 million, 312,000-square-foot locale which highlights preservation of the past via a walk through 4 billion years of history of life on Earth. 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.
