Pterosaurs: Flight in the Age of Dinosaurs
R. P. Simmons Family Gallery
January 30–May 22, 2016
The largest exhibit featuring these flying reptiles ever mounted in the United States, Pterosaurs highlights the latest research by Museum scientists and leading paleontologists around the world and features rare pterosaur fossils and casts from Italy, Germany, China, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Brazil as well as life-size models, videos, and interactive exhibits that immerse visitors in the mechanics of pterosaur flight, including a motion sensor-based interactive that allows you to use your body to “pilot” two species of pterosaurs through virtual prehistoric landscapes.
Pterosaurs: Flight in the Age of Dinosaurs is organized by the American Museum af Natural History, New York (www.amnh.org). Locally, this exhibition is supported by Dollar Bank, Pennsylvania Leadership Charter School, and Dunkin’ Donuts.
