    Animal History Museum

    in Pets

    If you’ve ever owned a horse, been owned by a cat, watched in awe as whales swam out to sea or even simply cried when Old Yeller died, you know that humans can, and often do, form extremely strong bonds with animals. And yet, despite millennia of anecdotal evidence showing the important role that animals play in our lives, there has been little formal, institutional acknowledgement of their significance. Until now.

    The Animal History Museum is the first museum designed to explore, honor and advance our understanding of the complex and evolving nature of man’s interactions with, and relationship to, the other species around us. We're going to be located in the Los Angeles area but our exhibits are being developed by a team of professionals around the globe... who are passionate about all things animal… for the benefit of all ages and segments of the general public… whether they are drawn to the museum by the same passions or simply want a place to learn and ask questions. Please visit us on the web atwww.animalhistorymuseum.org to to learn more about our plans!

    Please visit our Facebook page. We're planning lots of opportunities for you to enter photos and stories of your favorite companions for inclusion in our exhibits, win prizes, give your opinion on a variety of animal-related topics and more, so please check back frequently! If you like what you see, please "like" our page and help us grow!
