Climate Change and Beyond Babylon

Two exhibits I've had the opportunity to review recently are "Climate Change" at the American Museum of Natural History and "Beyond Babylon" at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Climate change is an excellent persuasive exhibit focusing on scientific evidence for human-caused climate change and evaluation of ways to ameliorate the effects in the future.

Beyond Babylon is a well-researched and artifact-rich exhibit that misses the mark slightly in terms of engaging the audience with the experiences of archeologists and art historians.

Both are worth checking out-- although I'd recommend seeing a lot more at the Met beyond "Beyond Babylon."
