Miniatures through the Mesozoic

Through April 25

Get a new perspective on deep time as you tower over a landscape of tiny dinosaurs and cross millions of years in a single step! Playful miniature dioramas bring the Mesozoic Era to life as you discover a variety of animals that lived in the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous Periods. The diversity of dinosaurs and the way ecosystems transformed during the Age of Reptiles may surprise you. Watch out for the flying asteroid that sealed their fate.

Dinorama: Miniatures through the Mesozoic is included with Museum admission. Members are always free.
