As of Wednesday, May 29, 2024 the Verus Research DynaTheater is reopen after a 9-day closure for upgrades. The theater underwent a major technological transformation, which saw it equipped with new state-of-the-art laser-illuminated 4K 3D projection, along with an upgraded surround-sound system, a suite of complementary technologies that will enhance the theater’s programming flexibility.


The theater’s giant 65-foot-wide screen now comes alive as never before – immersing audiences in dazzling ultra-high-resolution images featuring lush and vibrant colors and deep, infinite blacks, bringing 2D and 3D cinema experiences alive for a new generation of museum visitors. The immersive cinema sensation is complemented by a powerful upgrade to the theater’s multi-channel sound system, revealing new depth and clarity of audio details while reproducing sounds as soft as a whisper or as loud as a hurricane with equal fidelity.



Through this powerful new digital portal, the next generations of visitors will discover the magic of being immersed in giant-screen explorations of the universe around them; experiences which instill a passion for discovery, promote curiosity, and encourage viewers of all ages to pursue adventures of their own.


Visitors can experience the new upgrades with the new film Blue Whales: Return of the Giants 3D, playing now at the Verus Research DynaTheater!

Would you like to leave a legacy that will support the New Mexico Museum of Natural History Foundation without making a cash gift?


Planned giving through a number of vehicles such as a bequest, life insurance policy, retirement plan, charitable trust, real estate, or any combination thereof can help you realize your philanthropic objectives and provide you with many benefits including tax savings, life income, and increased cash flow. This type of legacy gift is an affordable way to support the New Mexico Museum of Natural History Foundation and may allow you to give at a level you never imagined possible.


A legacy gift commitment also conveys membership in the Heritage Society, a donor recognition group established in 2003. This leadership group honors donors who have made provisions through their estate plans or other planned giving vehicles to support the New Mexico Museum of Natural History Foundation.
