'Tis the season! Just like the Museum’s halls, the annual Origami Tree is home to reliable favorites and special attractions alike. Models of stalwarts like T. rex grace the tree every year—in fact, one origami pterosaur was folded sometime in the 1970s! This year, the volunteers from OrigamiUSA also added models inspired by the new exhibition Our Senses: An Immersive Experience, including optical illusions and balancing figures. Visit the tree in the Astor Turret, located on the fourth floor of the Museum, through January 7, 2018, to find your favorite pieces.

GUN OF THE DAY - Austrian Mountain Howitzer This GOTD has decided to go on exhibit elsewhere for a while. While this bronze tube howitzer started off as a muzzleloader in the American Civil War, postwar it was sold to Austria and then was converted to breechloading operation. While other European cannon were using metallic casings, this one relied on a nitrated linen-wrapped powder charge. Bore: 2.6 in. Production Date: 1862 #NRAmuseums #GunOfTheDay #guns #history #cannon
