Help Us Build It Be the first to see the new HMNS Paleontology Hall


BY Alex Wang [ June 07, 2011 at 13:04:58 ]

HOUSTON—Take part in helping us build one of the most dynamic Paleontology Halls in the world—and larger than a football field. Become a member now and own 30-thousand square feet of pure paleontological wonder, baring its fangs in Summer 2012. Besides seeing the brand-new hall before it opens to the public next year, new and renewing members will receive an extra three months of membership free, for a limited time only, as well as enjoy behind-the-scenes, special-access events all summer.

Embark on a Prehistoric Safari

The innovative hall packed with prehistoric beasts will not have displays of ancient skeletons in a row as visitors are accustomed to viewing. The predators and prey in the new paleontology hall will be in action—chasing, eating and escaping as they struggle for life. Embark on a prehistoric safari that takes you from the grand saga of human evolution, from tree-climbing australopithecines to courageous mammoth-hunters. Along this journey you will see:

·More than 50 new, mounted fossil skeletons including 24 dinosaurs all in “action” poses
·An all-bone T.rex featuring the best preserved and most complete hands and feet of any T.Rex found as well as patches of original skin
·Fossil mummy of a Triceratops, with most of the skin still preserved intact
·A 12-foot wide, reconstructed jaw of a Megalodon, a marine monster that was the largest shark that ever lived —poised in the act of ambushing a swimming mastodon
·A 17-foot, fleshed-out model of a Dimetrodon presented alongside “Willie,” the most complete Dimetrodon ever found
·Hundreds of hands-on specimens that allow for visitors to feel the bite marks on ancient prey carcasses and figure out which jaws inflicted the damage
·A nesting site for a Quetzalcoatlus family, ancient pterosaurs with 30-foot wingspans and bigger than a modern jet fighter
·The “Left-Behind” Exhibit—one of the finest displays of petrified poop—proof positive of prehistoric diets
·Numerous fossils brought to life with art and animation
·One of the world’s most spectacular collections of gem-quality petrified wood—with some sections up to 8 ft. wide
·100+ exquisitely-preserved marine Trilobites
·And much more!

“When Houstonians support the Museum as members, we want them to feel like they own the place,” said Latha Thomas, vice president of marketing and communications. “This world-class institution does not belong to the staff that works here, but to everyone in the Houston area and beyond. With the addition of the incredible new paleontology hall, HMNS strives to become even more fascinating and educational for our guests.”

Expansion Plan

In addition to a brand new Hall of Paleontology, the expansion plan will also create more than 115,000 square feet of badly needed exhibition, education, and classroom space - effectively doubling the number of classrooms currently available for educational programs; doubling the amount of public exhibition space that will be available for temporary and permanent installations; and tripling the amount of available collections storage space, to ensure the conservation and care of our collections for decades to come.

During this exclusive, Members-only FREE event enjoy a kid-friendly lecture with paleontologist Dr. Bob Bakker and search for fossil sharks’ teeth as well as discover traces of life, including many species of shark. Kids will love getting their photo taken with this giant Megalodon jaw.

Help us build it. For more information, visit the museum’s website at www.hmns.org.

With four floors of permanent exhibit halls, including the Wortham IMAX® Theatre, Cockrell Butterfly Center , Burke Baker Planetarium and George Observatory and as host to world-class and ever-changing touring exhibitions, the Houston Museum has something to delight every age group. With such diverse and extraordinary offerings, a trip to the Houston Museum of Natural Science, located at 5555 Hermann Park Drive in the heart of the Museum District, is always an adventure.
