Dinosaurs in Their Time

Dinosaurs in Their Time is the first permanent exhibition in the world to feature scientifically accurate, immersive environments spanning the Mesozoic Era—the Age of Dinosaurs—arranged chronologically and filled with actively posed original fossil specimens. See dinosaurs like they haven’t been seen in 66 million years!

The historic, century-old Dinosaur Hall was closed in Spring 2005 for over two years of renovation and construction, resulting in the spectacular exhibition Dinosaurs in Their Time. The renovated and expanded exhibition illustrates the incredible diversity of life in the Mesozoic Era, placing the dinosaurs in dramatic, scientifically accurate poses amidst the hundreds of plant and animal species that shared their environments.

Super Science Saturday: Dippy's Birthday Celebration

Get out your party hat—it’s time to celebrate Dippy’s birthday! Our Diplodocus skeleton turns 115 years old this year, and we invite you to celebrate this milestone with us here at the museum. Examine 155-million-year-old rocks from the fossil bed where Dippy was unearthed and see real bones! Meet the first Carnegie scientist since 1899 to visit the location of Dippy’s discovery. The ToonSeum visits to show how dinosaurs have been portrayed in animation. Talk with our educators and learn all about Dippy and his dinosaur friends. Don’t forget to bring a homemade or bought birthday card for Dippy to receive $1 off admission! Don’t miss your chance to party with the coolest dinosaur in town!
