When dinosaurs roamed the Earth.

Stand in the shadow of mighty T. rex… or underneath Gordo, the enormous Barosaurus… or beside our famous hadrosaur Parasaurolophus. No matter what the first stop on your dinosaur journey will be, you'll enter a gallery showcasing one of the world's best collections.

Hundreds of specimens welcome you to a gallery bursting with iconic and unusual dinosaurs, fossilized plants, insects and marine life. At the time dinosaurs lived, they shared the planet with other life on land, in the sea and in the air. Trace the development, relationships and legacy of all creatures that lived during the Age of Dinosaurs.

Special Exhibition: New Dino Discovered
