Chinasaurs: Dinosaur Discoveries From China
Date(s) - 24 Jun 2012
12:00 AM - 12:00 AM
Huge and exotic dinosaurs from China are at The Sam Noble Museum this summer! From the frightening Yangchuanosaurus, the 30-foot long king of the Asian Jurassic dinosaurs to the little Jurassic Park movie-star Velociraptor, a dozen rare cast dinosaurs are featured in this Mesozoic menagerie of mysterious dinosaurs in Chinasaurs.
Complementing the dinosaurs are fossil dinosaur eggs and nests, along with numerous bones of the Jurassic plant-eating Lufengosaurus and the Cretaceous plant-eating Psittacosaurus. Video presentations, maps, signage, and artwork provide further details into the story of the impressive skeletal displays.
Chinasaurs is the creation of dinosaur explorer “Dino” Don Lessem, author of more than 50 books on dinosaurs for children and adults and dinosaur columnist for Highlights Magazine for Children. “Dino” Don has been exploring and researching Chinese dinosaurs since 1988 and personally arranged the loan of Chinasaurs dinosaurs from Chinese paleontologists.
The museum is open Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday 1 to 5 p.m. (Admission is free on the first Monday of each month.)
