The evolution of life on Earth is full of amazing episodes.

But one story that really captures the imagination is the transition from the familiar, charismatic dinosaurs that dominated the planet for around 170 million years into a new, small, airborne form: birds.

Transformation: Dinosaurs to Birds

Transformation: Dinosaurs to Birds

The fossil record of this story grows richer by the day. So rich, in fact, that the boundary between the animals we call birds and the animals we traditionally called dinosaurs is now practically obsolete. In this special exhibition, visitors will discover how the dinosaurs’ extraordinary story continues today.

Explore the Museum's online dinosaur resources. Find dinosaur facts, photos, games for kids, videos, and articles.
