1972 - present
The exhibits in the Hall of New York State Mammals were originally part of the New York State Exhibits, which opened in 1939 and was located on the first floor of the Roosevelt Memorial. While on display in the Roosevelt Memorial, the mammals were displayed with New York region birds, insects, invertebrates, minerals, and reptiles and amphibians (2, 1953, p. 106). The mammal exhibits in the Roosevelt Memorial featured cutouts of whales and other sea animals as well as skins of moderately-sized local mammals (2, 1939, p. 113), the latter of which remained on display when the exhibit moved to the third floor in 1972 (3, 1971/72, p. 28). The Hall of New York State Mammals adjoins the Hall of New York City Birds (1).
