Set up to feel like a behind-the-scenes tour, the Smithsonian's "Objects of Wonder" exhibit will open Friday at the National Museum of Natural History. The exhibit will showcase rarely displayed artifacts and specimens that are part of the museum's archives and are resources for scientists to better understand the world. The museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and admission is free. "Objects of Wonder" will be open through 2019.
