Exhibit Case: Dinosaurs in Our Backyard
Location: First Floor of the National Museum of Natural History, Fossil Halls
One Exhibit Case: April 28, 2010 – Indefinite
From 225 to 65 million years ago, dinosaurs lived everywhere on Earth—including around Washington, D.C. This case explores how scientists piece together information about dinosaur biology, ecology, and evolution from fossil specimens, and the important contributions amateur collectors make to the Museum’s collections and knowledge. Visitors can see a unique skeleton impression of a baby dinosaur of a species new to science.
