MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
Yesterday I was invited for a luncheon and private tour of the new Dinosaur Hall. I am so impressed with the interactive designs incorporated to engage children visitors, to learn and understand this magnificant display. Mr T.rex-"Thomas" is also quite impressive and all the galleries are beautifully executed. The staff are wonderful and very passionate about The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles. Currently under construction are amazing out door Gardens and Nature Lab and in 2013 will be the 100th Anniversary Celebration. I highly suggest taking the time to view the new Dinosaur Hall and other exhibits. Truly a must see and introduce yourself to THOMAS THE T.REX!

The new Dinosaur Hall opened July 2011. Watch the early preview for the hall and our other dino videos.
The all-new, 14,000-square-foot Dinosaur Hall is twice the size of the Museum’s old dinosaur galleries. It will rival the world’s leading dinosaur halls for the number of individual fossils displayed, the size and spectacular character of the major mounts, including the world’s only Tyrannosaurus rex growth series, and the way that paleontology comes alive! In these spacious, light-filled galleries, visitors will encounter science not as static information but as a vibrant, ongoing investigation into mysteries — some resolved and some still being explored.
The stunning centerpiece of this gallery is the Tyrannosaurus rex growth series, featuring a baby, juvenile, and sub-adult T. rex. It's the only series of its kind in the world.
Baby: About 2 years old when it died, this 11-foot long specimen is the youngest known T. rex fossil in world.
Juvenile: At the young age of 13, this T. rex already measured more than 20 feet long and weighed about 4,000 pounds. A rare specimen, this fossil provides a crucial link in understanding the rapid growth of the T. rex.
Thomas the T. rex: This never-before-seen fossil was excavated by NHM paleontologists in southeastern Montana from 2003-2005. It is estimated to be a 70% complete specimen, one of ten most complete T. rex specimens on Earth. At 17 years old, 34 feet long and nearly 7,000 pounds, this giant completes a series showing dramatic changes and rapid growth of T. rex. Mid-spurt, it’s estimated that a T. rex could gain 1,500 pounds in a year.
A must see exhibit- what a treat!
