Center for PostNatural History

R. recently drew my attention to the fact that the Center for PostNatural History exists, and it is just down the street from us in Pittsburgh. This is definitely on the list of places to visit in 2013. Their mission statement:

The Center for PostNatural History is dedicated to the advancement of knowledge relating to the complex interplay between culture, nature, and biotechnology. The PostNatural  refers to living organisms that have been altered through processes such as selective breeding or genetic engineering. The mission of the Center for PostNatural History is to acquire, interpret, and provide access to a collection of living, preserved and documented organisms of postnatural origin.

And of course their current exhibition is “Atomic Age Rodents.”
