The New Hall of Paleontology in Houston - The Houston Museum of Natural Science (HMNS) will be opening up a new $85 million, football-field sized dinosaur hall this coming June in their Duncan Family Wing. Over 750 fossils and 60 large mounts, including one of the most complete T. Rexes ever found, will be exhibited in this world-class paleontological safari. The HMNS says:
The innovative hall is packed with prehistoric beasts, and will not have the same stagnant displays of ancient skeletons standing in a row that many visitors are accustomed to seeing. Rather, the predators and prey in the new paleontology hall will be in action — chasing, eating and escaping as they struggle for life. Embark on a “prehistoric safari” that also includes the grand saga of human evolution — from tree-climbing australopithecines to courageous mammoth-hunters.
The exhibit is to be one of the finest collection of fossils in the United States and definitely a must-see for you and your dino-loving kids.
The new Paleontology Hall opens to the public on June 2nd. Learn more at HMNS.org
