Studio C's Matt Meese visits the newly renovated Monte L. Bean Life Science Museum, where he worked when he was a BYU student. The museum reopened June 7, 2014, after a two year remodel. See mlbean.byu.edu for information about hours and schedules for live animal shows and other events.

The new Monte L. Bean Life Science Museum at Brigham Young University features a 32,400 square foot expansion and new exhibits.

"We are so excited to introduce the public to the new Bean Museum," said Museum Director Larry St. Clair. "It is a beautiful facility and a great place to explore and learn more about the wonderful creatures of our world."

Visitors to the museum's 32,400 square foot expansion and renovated facility will be able to explore even more of the earth's ecosystems and biodiversity through new exhibits, including:

Our Living Planet -- the unique, life-sustaining characteristics of planet Earth, featuring an eight-foot-in-diameter fiberglass globe, mapped with the most current NASA satellite images.
Life on Top: Apex Predators -- see what it's like to live at the top of the food chain with this display of animals as they might be found in the wild.
Whooo Lives Here? -- play area designed just for toddlers that teaches young children about animal homes with a talking owl, a bear cave and a tree nest with slide.
Fred and Sue Morris Bird Gallery -- a collection of more than 100 species of birds donated by Fred and Sue Morris.
Boyd K. Packer Gallery -- this exhibit features the wildlife art of President Boyd K. Packer, the President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, including animal carvings and paintings.
