Nature and the Human Spirit: The Natural History Museum takes us out of our everyday lives and places us into this world of discovery and exploration. It makes us wonder about all of the other creatures that lived in previous centuries, or even millennia. It makes visitors realize how unique the world around us truly is. After visiting the shark exhibit for example, visitors start to compare their current day organisms, such as a great white shark, with organisms of a prehistoric age, such as the magnificent Carcharodon Megalodon. There is so much about extinct organisms that we have yet to discover, and the mystery of these previous creatures still remains.
