Fossils and Evolution

Discover how animals and plants have come and gone throughout Earth's ancient history. Here, you and your young explorers can encounter colossal dinosaurs, uncover the secrets of flying reptiles, and learn about the extraordinary event when an asteroid collided with our planet.

Journey through earth's dynamic history

Over millions of years, life forms vary in appearance. Species evolve and become extinct. Continents move and volcanoes spew out their gases. At times it is hot, other times it is ice cold.

All such changes have influenced the forms that life takes on Earth today. Our planet continues to change, and humans with it.
