Dinosaurs in Their Time

In 2007–2008, the museum’s historic Dinosaur Hall was transformed into Dinosaurs in Their Time. The new name reflects the fact that, for the first time, the dinosaurs are integrated into the environments of their respective time periods. Even though dinosaurs (except their descendants, birds) are no longer with us, the plants and other animals that surrounded them continue to evolve and create the biological diversity that surrounds us today. Carnegie's dinosaurs have been remounted in scientifically accurate, active poses, and new specimens never before seen by the public were added to the exhibition. Dinosaurs in Their Time was a project 200 million years in the making! Vist here for more information on Dinosaurs in Their Time.
