Description

Bring the family and learn about how dinosaurs raised their tiny titans! It is an exhibit features dinosaur eggs and babies!

On display in our Changing Exhibits Gallery, this remarkable hands-on exhibit offers an astounding array of authentic dinosaur eggs and nests collected from all over the globe – including those of each of the major plant and meat-eating dinosaur groups.

 

Kids can dig for eggs, dress up like a parent dinosaur to brood their nest, and feel the texture of dinosaur eggs. Cute babies and fun Dino facts will keep everyone entertained on your next trip to the museum!

 

A central feature of the exhibit is a presentation about the discovery of Baby Louie, the nearly complete skeleton of a dinosaur embryo with its bones aligned in the proper position.  Charlie Magovern made this exceptional and rare discovery in 1993 when he was carefully cleaning a large block of eggs from China.  He nicknamed the embryo after National Geographic photographer Louis Psihoyos.  It was not until 2017 that this remarkable find was officially published.  Tiny Titans has included these new revelations as well as other new scientific discoveries to fill in the gaps of what is known of dinosaur family life.
