Pterosaurs: Flight in the Age of Dinosaurs

They flew with their fingers and walked on their wings. Millions of years ago, the skies were ruled by pterosaurs.

Neither birds nor dinosaurs, pterosaurs were the first vertebrates to evolve powered flight. 

Incredible new fossil discoveries are revealing surprising clues about the diversity of pterosaurs, their unique wing-finger anatomy, and their capabilities for flight and locomotion.

In this fascinating and unique exhibition, rare fossils, life-size models, and hands-on interactives bring these ancient animals to life.
