I am thrilled to share with you crewcuts latest t-shirt collaboration with the American Museum of Natural History! J. Crew was given special and never before allowed access to the New York institution’s archives for one-of-a-kind t-shirt designs that take your little scientist on a journey through the Akeley Hall of African Mammals, Hall of Saurischian Dinosaurs, Rose Center for Earth and Space, and Morgan Memorial Hall of Gems. These tees are so fun and engaging they just may inspire you and your little ones to explore the Museum yourself!

“We were so excited to have special access to the American Museum of Natural History’s back rooms, archives and scholars to help us design the tees.

It was an honor to be the first brand able to go through these historic archives for inspiration for the tees.”
