Museum on the Move: Excavating the Edmontosaurus

The Museum of Paleontology is on the move. Follow a giant Edmontosaurus dinosaur skeleton from its dig site in Montana, to an exhibit in the Museum of Natural History, and most recently to a research facility where scientists once again will get to take a close look at the bones. For a dead specimen, the Edmontosaurus has managed to stay active over the years.

Please Note: The Museum of Paleontology is a research facility. It is not usually open to the public. Please refer to the Museum of Natural History website if you wish to visit.
