Sitting in the shadow of the University of Pittsburgh’s Cathedral of Learning, the Carnegie Museum of Natural History shares the same building with the Carnegie Library and Music Hall and the Carnegie Museum of Art. The original structure was built in 1895, but the Museum of Natural History now resides entirely in an expansion built in 1907. The complex takes up several city blocks and contains a scientific menagerie of exhibits including ”Dinosaurs in Their Time” (which contains more real fossils than any other museum in the world), the Walton Hall of Ancient Egypt (with over 600 ancient Egyptian artifacts), African and North American Wildlife, the Bird Hall and more.
