Come eye-to-eye with the giants of our prehistoric past
Giant beasts roam the halls of Cincinnati Museum Center. From massive plant-eating sauropods to fierce two-legged predators, Dinosaur Hall features incredible, awe-inspiring specimens you won’t find anywhere else. Six prehistoric beasts, many at the center of ongoing scientific research, tower overhead. And state-of-the-art interactive elements will help you experience the late Jurassic like never before. Dinosaur Hall utilizes our globally-significant fossil collections to explore dinosaur evolution, ecology and biology.
Dinosaur Hall at Cincinnati Museum Center features six giant dinosaur specimens, including the nearly 60-foot-long Galeamopus pabsti. Have you ever wondered what it takes to get a fossil dinosaur specimen from the ground to the museum gallery? Dr. Glenn Storrs, our Withrow Farny Curator of Vertebrate Paleontology who first started work on the Galeamopus 18 years before it made it into Dinosaur Hall, gives us the dirt on how it's done.
