The World's Largest Dinosaurs
This fascinating exhibition reveals amazing insights into the largest dinosaurs ever to walk the Earth - the long-necked and long-tailed sauropods. So massive! So tall! Such long necks and tiny heads!
Come face-to-face with a life-sized, fleshed-out model of a 60-foot-long, 11-foot-tall female Mamenchisaurus, known for its incredible 30-foot neck. Through video projections and innovative exhibits see her giant heart, lungs, digestive and other systems at work and appreciate more about how an extremely large animal breathes, eats, moves and survives. You'll understand why scientists from many fields consider these giants one of Earth’s great success stories.
