Dinosaurs: Ancient Fossils, New Discoveries

Posted in By mark

May 17 to September 16, 2012
The blockbuster exhibition of the year! Imagine the thrill of discovering something new about a creature that lived millions of years ago. Since the first dinosaur fossil was identified almost 200 years ago, people have wondered how these fascinating animals lived, moved and behaved.

Dinosaurs explores how paleontologists today use modern technologies, along with new discoveries and ideas, to investigate and reinterpret puzzling dinosaur mysteries, such as what they really looked like, how they moved and the hotly debated theories of why – or even whether – they became extinct.

Our program schedule during Dinosaurs is jam-packed with  events, presentations and hands-on activities.
