This spring, the American Museum of Natural History will be acquiring a new resident—a 122-foot-long cast of a dinosaur that will be part of a new permanent exhibition in the Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Orientation Center. The introduction of this new exhibition will kick off a year of dinosaur-themed events and exhibitions, including Dinosaurs Among Us, which examines the way in which a group of dinosaurs became the birds we are familiar with today. The exhibition will delve into the anatomy and physiology of our current-day birds and how they link back to their ancestors. Included in the exhibition are rare fossils and extremely life-like models of extinct creatures. For more information, visit amnh.org.

Museums & Galleries Titanosaur

The museum's titanosaur–a cast of a 122-foot-long dinosaur that has recently been discovered in Patagonia–is so large it does not fit in the museum's gallery in which it currently lives. While so new that it hasn't been formerly named, the species is a herbivore believed to have lived within Patagonia's forests some 100 million years ago. Among the original fossils on view alongside the titanosaur is a femur found at the excavation site.
