Description

A sculpted showdown—cast from real dinosaur fossils—between a Barosaurus and an Allosaurus greets you beneath the soaring ceilings of the museum's rotunda as you enter, setting the scene for the dramatic and lifelike exhibits to come. From here, journey to the African savanna to spy on gorillas, lions, elephants, and giraffes in detailed replicas of their natural habitats.

In the Rose Center for Earth and Space, wind your way up the space-bound Cosmic Pathway, following the history of the universe—from the formation of the Milky Way to the beginnings of life on Earth. Learn about the astrophysical mystery known as “dark energy” and gaze up at galaxies, constellations, and nebulae inside the Hayden Planetarium.

There are so many exhibits in here, we ended up walking miles! What surprised me most was the hot lunch buffet with delicious pulled pork!
