If you’re lucky enough to be in Manhattan at Christmastime and you’re checking off a list of holiday sights to see, be sure to add the Origami Christmas Tree at the American Museum of Natural History, which is perhaps the most unique holiday tree in the city. The theme of this year’s 13-foot tree is Gems of the Museum, featuring 50 specially created gold-colored models in recognition of the ‘Golden Anniversary’ (50th Origami Tree) of this Museum tradition, which started in the 1970s. Among the more than 1,000 origami pieces decorating the tree are models of dazzling specimens from the new Allison and Roberto Mignone Halls of Gems and Minerals, “jaw-some” pieces inspired by the new special exhibition Sharks, and those depicting iconic Museum exhibits like the Blue Whale, Titanosaur, and Tyrannosaurus Rex. Produced in partnership with OrigamiUSA, the Origami Tree is delightfully decorated with hand-folded paper models created by local, national, and international origami artists. See it now through January 9th, 2022!
