Also known as the University of Kansas Natural History Museum, the Dyche Hall is a historic building in the university?s Lawrence, Kansas campus. It was inaugurated in 1903, and was named after the famous naturalist, Lewis Lindsay Dyche. The man is best known for having his work, the Panorama of North American Plants and Animals, featured in the Kansas Pavilion of the 1893 World?s Columbian Exposition.

Dyche Hall is a part of the National Registry of Historic Places for its connection with Dyche. The museum was actually built to house the Panorama of North America Mammals, so hehelped design the main-floor diorama that?s still on display today. It is also noted for its stunning Venetian Romanesque architecture. It is also notable for having Dyche?s taxidermy work on display, and for developing programs that are completely groundbreaking.
