This Curator's Coffee will discuss and present the Museum's year-long Centennial Exhibit, Dinosaur Century. New Mexico has been a magnet to some of the world's legendary dinosaur hunters. Fossils of New Mexico dinosaurs are in the collections of (or on display at) the nation's largest natural history museums, including the Smithsonian, American Museum and the Field Museum. Since the 1980s, the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science has taken the lead in digging up, studying and interpreting New Mexico's dinosaurs. The session will include a walking tour of the Museum's Dinosaur Century exhibit. |
