3. 81st Street-The Museum of Natural History (A/B/C)


The 81st St.-Museum of Natural History station is a museum in itself.  For Want of A Nail is a collaborative installation by the MTA Arts and Design Team that maps out the journey of evolution. Filled with vivid scenes like this ocean mural on the Brooklyn-bound C platform, others consist of a galaxy-themed stair case, fossils embedded into the tiles, and everyone’s favorite, the animal mosaics.
