Through the dioramas in the Jill and Lewis Bernard Family Hall of North American Mammals at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, you can explore North America s chief environments and encounter some of its remarkable residents face to face. Each of the dioramas shows an actual place on the continent, at one moment in time, with plants and animals you d see there. The hall, which first opened in 1942, features mammal species ranging from the Alaska brown bear to the jaguar, and its dioramas are widely considered the finest in the world.
 
Many of the places depicted in these scenes are protected as refuges for wildlife, a legacy of Theodore Roosevelt s presidency in the early 1900s. Even now, those places still largely resemble their depiction in the dioramas a tribute to that conservation effort. Several of the dioramas re-create scenes from national parks Roosevelt signed into being or national monuments he declared, including Crater Lake National Park, Grand Canyon National Park (which Roosevelt set aside as Grand Canyon National Monument), and Devils Tower National Monument, among others.
