Mission Statement

Since its beginning in 1900 as The American Museum Journal, Natural History is the authoritative voice that curious readers turn to for informed insights and understanding of natural phenomena. The magazine’s mission is to promote understanding and appreciation of the world around us.

  • Our authors—an assortment of archaeologists, biologists, astronomers, anthropologists, and top science writers—delve into our origins, explore our future, offer provocative new explanations of why we act the way we do, explaining our relationships with the rest of the living world, from the tiniest microorganisms to the largest creatures that ever walked the land or swam the seas. No detail is too small to be overlooked, no question too big to be asked.
  • Our columnists are gifted thinkers with an original take on their subjects.
  • Award-winning photographers capture the Earth’s natural beauty.
  • Natural History is also a rich trove of recommendations for books and travel.

Join us in the ultimate adventure—exploring our world!
