New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science


Two, life-size bronze dinosaurs greet you at the entrance. Inside, you can walk through a glowing volcano; learn about Triassic-era creatures; wander through realistic caves both dry and damp; and experience a time when New Mexico was covered by an inland sea. In FossilWorks, watch trained volunteers extract finds from rock. In The Hall of Stars, test your knowledge of the constellations. In STARTUP, see the history of personal computers unfold.
