Mammals at Carnegie Museum of Natural History
The Section of Mammals collection houses the eighth largest collection of Recent mammals in the Western Hemisphere. Working closely with public programming staff, the section helps to ensure that information presented about mammals through the museum’s programs is scientifically accurate.
Although collection holdings are worldwide in coverage, there is continued interest in the mammals of Pennsylvania and surrounding states. Please visit the Mammals of Pennsylvania Resource for more information.
Also featured in the Section of Mammals, is the Childs Frick Abyssinian Expedition which contributed more than 100 African mammals to the collection.
