Get ready to travel to Antarctica in search of dinosaurs. This exhibition lets you follow in the footsteps of scientists and explorers who have made this journey for centuries, and continue today, in search of rare dinosaurs found only on this icy continent.
The exhibition tells the story of modern day paleontologists, NHM's Dr. Nathan Smith and Dr. Pete Makovicky, Curator of Dinosaurs at Chicago's Field Museum, and their expedition to excavate fossils beneath the ice and stone. Visitors experience the adventure themselves, as they choose protective gear and supplies, drop in on Snow School training, and set up their remote Antarctic field site. Hands-on excavation activities, touchable specimens, and media touchscreens take visitors behind-the-scenes on what these expeditions are really like!
