Dino Deluxe: LA's Natural History Museum Debuts New Dinosaur Hall

The dinosaur exhibit at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County is finally going to have a home worthy of its collection. We hear this Saturday, July 16, the new Dinosaur Hall will open in the original domed 1913 building and the 1920s extension, which will offer twice as much space as the previous exhibit.

According to About.com, the exhibit will have over 300 fossils and 20 complete dinosaur and sea creature mounts, making it one of the most extensive dinosaur exhibits in the world.

Kiddies in tow? Be sure to check out the Dinosaur Encounters interactive performance with a life-size juvenile T-rex. The Encounters is held Wed-Fri 10:30, 11:30 & 1:30; Sat-Sun 11:30 and 2:30.
