Committed to creating dynamic, hands-on exhibitions, the Paleontological Research Institution and its Museum of the Earth promotes a greater appreciation of science and the planet we call home. From prehistory to today’s global change, our exhibitions engage visitors in a host of topics, each of which is developed by a team of researchers and exhibition specialists.

Our exhibitions are designed for small- to medium-sized spaces. Most of our exhibitions require gallery installation, with self-supporting, lightweight, and easily assembled elements. They are ideal for both museum and non-museum settings, such as visitor centers, schools, and libraries.

Exhibitors receive:

  1. The exhibition for the specified loan period
  2. List of exact exhibit specifications
  3. Exhibition technical manual
  4. Condition report
  5. Evaluation form
  6. Press kit
  7. Educational resources

Exhibitors responsibilities include:

  • Return a signed contract confirming booking dates
  • Pay the participation fee where applicable. Exhibitors will be billed approximately one month prior to the opening date of an exhibition.
  • All shipping costs, unless alternate arrangements are made.
  • Insure the exhibition in transit and while at the participating institution.
