THE PHILO PROJECT: WAGNER FREE INSTITUTE OF SCIENCE
For best picture quality, please watch in 720 or 1080 HD
The Wagner Free Institute of Science houses an extraordinary collection of natural history specimens including mounted birds and mammals, fossils, rocks and minerals, insects, shells, dinosaur bones, and the first American saber-toothed tiger, discovered on a museum-sponsored expedition to Florida in 1886. Gathered largely by founder William Wagner and Institute curators and faculty during the nineteenth century, the collections are displayed in cherry-wood and glass cabinets dating from the 1880s and maintain their original “systematic” scheme, providing a rare view of a Victorian science museum.

So why am I doing this? READ ON..
