At the American Museum of Natural History
Burton took several trips to New York City to study the exhibitions at the American Museum of Natural History. She would spend long hours drawing the dinosaur skeletons and the large dioramas of plant and animal life. Many of the sketches of the skeletons include people looking at the exhibitions. Some of her drawings even show small figures cleaning the displays with a tiny vacuum. Several images in her sketchbook feature exhibitions on display at the museum today.
