Dinosaurs: Ancient Fossils, New Discoveries

This groundbreaking exhibition showcases ongoing, cutting-edge research by American Museum of Natural History paleontologists and other leading scientists from around the world. Dinosaurs explores how paleontologists today are using an incredible array of new technologies—from bioengineering computer software to CT scans—along with new discoveries and ideas to investigate and reinterpret many of the most puzzling and persistent mysteries of dinosaurs. The exhibition features gigantic life-size cast skeletons of T. rex and Stegosaurus; a stunning 60-foot-long model of an Apatosaurus skeleton along with media analysis of its movements; and an engaging suite of hands-on activities, interactives, and videos exploring how dinosaurs moved and what may have led to their extinction. 

Dinosaurs: Ancient Fossils, New Discoveries is organized by the American Museum of Natural History, New York, in collaboration with the Houston Museum of Natural Science; the California Academy of Sciences, San Francisco; The Field Museum, Chicago; and the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, Raleigh.
