The Last American Dinosaurs: Discovering a Lost World

November 25, 2014 – 2018 (TBA)

Natural History Museum
10th and Constitution Ave., NW
Washington, DC

Location: 2nd Floor, West

Explore how we learn about past ecosystems and organisms through the study of their fossils and take a peek "behind the curtain" to see what goes into making a new, large-scale fossil exhibition. See “Hatcher” the Triceratops, a Tyrannosaurus skull, other fossils from the same ecosystem as “Hatcher.” Watch fossils being prepared in a working fossil preparation lab.
