Most major paleontology exhibits feature dinosaur skeletons lined up one after the other. But when the Houston Museum of Natural Science unveiled its own Hall of Paleontology in 2012, they tried something entirely different: recreating actual encounters between dinosaurs as they might have occurred millions of years ago. The results are fantastic: fossils in actual action—eating, chasing and fighting. The Paleo Hall is among a number of world class exhibits within the HMNS, including a breathtaking jewelry vault and an indoor rainforest containing thousands of living butterflies.
