The Age of Mammals

  • Client: Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County
  • 7,400 Square Feet

Age of Mammals is a permanent exhibit that traces the evolution of mammals and mammal diversity over the last 65 million years.

Cinnabar provided custom specimen cases, modular information rails, and exhibit platforms integrated with large and small specimen mounts, as well as audiovisual system and mechanical interactives. These systems were developed to facilitate the installation of large, heavy displays in the historical building, while satisfying stringent seismic and safety codes.

Extensive use of full-scale prototypes aided the project team throughout the design-build process.

Here is the museum’s press release on the exhibition.

Age of Mammals won the Annual Excellence in Exhibition Competition Award for Special Achievement in Clarity of Message, 2011, American Association of Museums.
