Tour the Museum’s “Big Bone Room,” part of the world’s largest dinosaur collection, and journey to a dinosaur dig site with Macaulay Curator of Paleontology Mark Norell and Research Associate Emanuel Tschopp. The paleontologists will be answering questions live while taking viewers to a dig at the famous Morrison Formation, one of the best dinosaur sites in North America, and through the space that houses some of the largest items in the Museum’s paleontology collection.
