Live Stream: Catch the Annual "Whale Wash" at the American Museum of Natural History

The Giant Blue Whale at the American Museum of Natural History is one of the museum’s most popular and well-known exhibits.

Every year, the massive whale gets a scrub down over a few days, and it’s pretty interesting to watch. This year’s cleaning starts on Wednesday, September 7th and goes through Friday, September 9th.

In the Milstein Hall of Ocean Life visitors at the Museum will be able to watch as members of the Exhibition department use long-handled brushes and vacuums to wipe away the dust from the 94-foot long, 21,000-pound model.

If you can’t make it out to the American Museum of Natural History next week, you can always check in on the action through the YouTube live stream above, set to start on Wednesday as well.
