2012 is the Year of the Dinosaur at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. Our world-class paleontology hall - the length of a football field, is one of the most dynamic paleo halls in the world.
Embark on a Prehistoric Safari
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.
