Festooned with more than 1,000 meticulously hand-folded paper ornaments, this year’s 13-foot tree is inspired by the museum’s “Dinosaurs Among Us” exhibit, meaning you’ll spot feathered dinos, stunning modern birds and other treasured models. Make sure to take photos with the two holiday barosaurs at the front steps of the museum, which are made of openwork stainless steel and adorned with pine boughs and lights.
