Naming Opportunities

Name a Mammal Hall Diorama

The animal dioramas of Mammal Hall have comprised The State Museum’s most popular and beloved exhibit for almost 50 years. Thirteen window displays depict stunningly realistic scenes from actual places throughout the state. Each shows a particular time of day, season, and habitat – showcasing the wildlife of Pennsylvania.

The State Museum is currently working in partnership with world-class specialists to completely restore the dioramas.  In addition, new gallery lighting and newly written and designed diorama labels will be installed during the restoration process.

The State Museum and PHF are partnering with the community to offer donors the opportunity for recognition in Mammal Hall by naming the dioramas.  This allows the donor to honor a loved one, to establish a legacy, and to support PHF and The State Museum in our ongoing restoration, exhibit, and fundraising efforts.

Diorama naming opportunities range from $10,000-$50,000.  All donor gifts of $1,000 or more will be recognized on a plaque in Mammal Hall as well.
