Dinosaurs in Their Time

Dinosaurs in Their Time is the first permanent exhibition in the world to feature scientifically accurate, immersive environments spanning the Mesozoic Era—the Age of Dinosaurs—arranged chronologically and filled with actively posed original fossil specimens. See dinosaurs like they haven’t been seen in 66 million years!

The historic, century-old Dinosaur Hall was closed in Spring 2005 for over two years of renovation and construction, resulting in the spectacular exhibition Dinosaurs in Their Time. The renovated and expanded exhibition illustrates the incredible diversity of life in the Mesozoic Era, placing the dinosaurs in dramatic, scientifically accurate poses amidst the hundreds of plant and animal species that shared their environments.

Time Machines: Watches from the H.J. Heinz Collection

Showcasing more than 20 of ketchup magnate H. J. Heinz’s most spectacular time pieces, Time Machines: Watches from the H.J. Heinz Collection, turns back the hands of time with such beauties as a gold mechanical “repeating watch” with figures that strike the hour, an example of clock-making technology that dates to the 17th century. Other rarities include a watch once owned by British naval hero Lord Admiral Horatio Nelson and a music box watch adorned with a feathered bird.

Time Machines is a repeat presentation of the extremely popular exhibition that appeared in Wertz Gallery in the summer of 2008.
