American Museum of Natural History and J. Crew make history with cool science t-shirts

AMNH JCrew leopard tee

When I took my son to the American Museum of Natural History in NYC last summer, I realized that I’d forgotten how full of fun and wonder museums can be. The fab collection of museum-inspired science t-shirts for kids from J. Crew for AMNH is bringing it all back–for him and for me.

The six designs are largely gender neutral and integrate fun science facts. How long are a T. Rex’s teeth? What will you find in the Hall of Gems? I’m not going to tell you. But the shirts can lead you to the answers.

I especially like how the Olive and Dino Tee (middle photo) blends the coolness of dinosaurs with the fun of being a girl who digs that kind of stuff, all without resorting to dousing the shirt in pink and glitter. That’s a sign of a smart collaboration. That said, how about a little diversity in the models, AMNH? It’s not just white kids who like science or cool tees.

J.Crew for AMNH science t-shirts for kids are available now in the AMNH shop for $32

-$38. Proceeds from the sale of shirts support the museum.
