LHS- Jurassic Park: The Life
and Death of Dinosaurs
Through May 12
Were they gone in a flash? Or did climate changes, disease, and/or overpopulation gradually bring the reign of dinosaurs to an end? We're still asking, theorizing, and dramatizing what happened to these creatures.
The exhibit features models of the sets and dinosaur sculptures used in the films; an 8' by 10' hands-on dig pit where parts of an Albertosaurus and Dromaeosaurs are buried; and more than 30 skeletons and parts, including fossils that visitors can touch. This is one of the largest collection of traveling dinosaurs ever assembled.
$8 for adults; $6 for youth 5-18, seniors, and disabled; $4 for children 3-4.
Free for children under 3, LHS Members and full-time UC Berkeley students.
