  • Laysan Island Cyclorama - University of Iowa Museum of Natural History

    Iowa City, Iowa/U.S.A.

     

    Pentacrest Museums Director: Liz Crooks

     

     

    The University of Iowa Museum of Natural History was founded by order of the Iowa Legislature in 1858 and is the oldest university museum west of the Mississippi River. The museum combines exhibits, education resources, programming, collections, and research opportunities to support the University of Iowa and our community. The mission of the University of Iowa Museum of Natural History is to inspire in visitors of all ages understanding and a sense of wonder, discovery, respect, and responsibility for our natural and cultural worlds through exhibits, educational programs, and collections, as well as through linkages with UI research and activities.

    Unique to the Museum of Natural History is the Laysan Island Cyclorama.  The century-old Laysan Island Cyclorama offers a 360-degree view of Laysan, an outpost of the Hawaiian atoll and a bird sanctuary. The Laysan Island Cyclorama is the only one left of its kind. Completed in 1914, it was one of the first and is now the last remaining example to feature a natural history group. It is the only one ever to represent a single ecosystem.  The Laysan Island Cyclorama is in a purpose-built room in the northwest corner of the Hageboeck Hall of Birds, in Macbride Hall on the University of Iowa campus in downtown Iowa City.  Considered an integral part of the Museum of Natural History, the building was constructed with space reserved for the yet to be created cyclorama.

    Museum-Panorama The Battle of Borodino is one of the well-known and popular military museums in Russia. The main exhibit of the museum is the famous panorama 'Borodino' by Franz Roubaud.

    The history of the museum dates back to September 11, 1912, when the Borodino Panorama was opened to the public in Moscow. In 1962 it was rehoused in a new building on Kutuzovsky Prospect. Battle artworks, pieces of decorative and applied art, arms, military uniforms and objects of everyday battlefield life of the Russian and French armies in 1812 are on display at the museum together with the Borodino Panorama.

    In 2018, the Museum-Panorama The Battle of Borodino took the initiative of establishing the Sector of Museums-Custodians of Panoramas and Dioramas in Russia. This organization is tasked to promote cooperation in preserving and research of historic panoramas and dioramas in Russia (http://pdsector.ru/eng/ ). The Museum-Panorama The Battle of Borodino is an official coordinator of the Sector's activity.
