Dinosaurs have never been cooler

Venture into one of the most isolated environments on Earth on a journey into the unexpected. Uncover never-before-seen dinosaur fossils buried beneath snow and ice in Dinosaurs of Antarctica: The Exhibition.

Travel back 200 million years to ancient Antarctica, a land of lush woodland, teeming with prehistoric beasts. Discover fossils from four Antarctic dinosaur species, including the fierce 25-foot long Cryolophosaurus, and take discovery into your own hands as you use real tools to learn how paleontologists carefully extracted fossils from the now frozen landscape.

As you travel between past and present, gain an understanding of the tough working conditions for intrepid scientists who continue to explore the vast continent today and learn how research of these fossils sheds new light on our planet’s ever-changing climate and geology.

Dinosaurs of Antarctica: The Exhibition is included with admission. Open through January 22, 2023.
