As the first museum in the United States dedicated to climate, the Climate Museum (CM) mobilizes the power of arts and cultural programming to accelerate a necessary far-reaching shift toward climate dialogue and action, building community and advancing just solutions. The popularity and trust held by museums help us bring people together to learn and to join the fight for a brighter future.
The museum’s work is undergirded by research that reveals unprecedented levels of both climate anxiety and support for bold climate policy. While two thirds of us, a bipartisan supermajority, want to see sweeping changes and progress, we dramatically misperceive climate sentiment, believing two thirds of us are instead opposed to these popular policies.
We offer the public a unique array of free programs bringing forward justice, empowerment, and action to inspire visitors and program participants to break the climate silence, including:
● Art-focused exhibitions and public installations
● Dialogues with leaders and experts
● Performances and film screenings
● Creative youth programs and workshops
Since its first year of public programming in 2018, the CM has staged seven exhibitions, welcomed an audience of more than 100,000, and hosted or been featured at more than 250 events, eliciting consistently positive audience feedback, media coverage, and peer reviews.
The museum is currently scaling up to a permanent year-round presence in New York City. Additional information is available at climatemuseum.org.
