Our puppets aren't just for show. A lot went into the making of NHM's completely unique Dinosaur Encounters Program.
The all-new, 14,000-square-foot Dinosaur Hall is twice the size of the Museum’s old dinosaur galleries. It will rival the world’s leading dinosaur halls for the number of individual fossils displayed, the size and spectacular character of the major mounts, including the world’s only Tyrannosaurus rex growth series, and the way that paleontology comes alive! In these spacious, light-filled galleries, visitors will encounter science not as static information but as a vibrant, ongoing investigation into mysteries — some resolved and some still being explored.
The stunning centerpiece of this gallery is the Tyrannosaurus rex growth series, featuring a baby, juvenile, and sub-adult T. rex. It's the only series of its kind in the world.
This imposing, never-before-displayed Triceratops greets visitors as they enter the exhibition at the start of Gallery 2.
Stegosaurus is an armored dinosaur with a back covered in large plates and with large spikes on its tail. This Stegosaurus is mounted fighting with the predator Allosaurus. Allosaur fossils have been found that show wounds from Stegosaurus spikes, which is why they’re posed the way they are in the Dinosaur Hall.
