About this image:
Towering dinosaurs, rare fossils and virtual paleo-habitats are just a few of the features that make the T. Boone Pickens Life Then and Now Hall a must-go destination for dinosaur lovers, fossil collectors or just about anyone who has ever wondered what life was like when dinosaurs roamed the Earth.
Inside the 11,000-square-foot exhibition space within the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, you’ll discover awe-inspiring fossil finds like the infamous predator Tyrannosaurus rex or the plant-eating Alamosaurus. You’ll also discover how plants and animals have adapted to changing conditions over the millennia — and you’ll have the chance to introduce beneficial adaptations of your own as you create a virtual animal to do battle in our videogame challenge.
