Comments / pictures


The Barnum Museum of Natural History was a natural history museum on the grounds of Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts.

The museum was established by P.T. Barnum and displayed valuable exotic dead animals from his circus.

His greatest prize was Jumbo the Elephant whose skin and bones were displayed. The building now known as Barnum Hall was gutted when a fire destroyed the entire collection inside on April 14, 1975. The building has since been partially reconstructed.
