About PBS Diorama

DIORAMA is for science nerds, backyard explorers, animal enthusiasts and urban naturalists. It’s a series of digital shorts from the wondrous halls of The American Museum of Natural History, taking inspiration from the Museum’s classic dioramas and behind-the-scenes archive.

DIORAMA is an exploration of curiosity — where science, art and history all meet.

Produced by WNET’s Interactive Engagement Group in collaboration with The American Museum of Natural History and PBS Digital Studios.
