The Titanosaur
A recent addition to the Museum of Natural History's collection is the 122 foot long titanosaur. The fossils were just added in 2016 and are believed to be the remains of a 70 ton herbivore. (who knew you could gain so much weight eating plants?). The Titanosaur can be viewed any time that you visit the museum.

Hall of Biodiversity
One of the great aspects of the Museum of Natural History is the Hall of Biodiversity which features a few exhibits that focus on particular species. Be careful as you stroll down the hall, you can expect to encounter a few wild Siberian Tigers.

Human Origins and Cultural Halls
While the museum showcases a great deal of animals and plants from around the world, there are also quite a few exhibits that focus on the origin of human beings. In the Human Origins and Cultural Halls, you will find beautiful displays that tell a story about who we are as people.
