You still have time to see one of the most significant private fossil collections in the world at the Cranbrook Institute of Science. Dinosaurs – The Lost World showcases more then 50 species from the collection of John and Jack Hankla.
The Lost World reveals the incredible diversity of dinosaurs, pterosaurs, and marine reptiles of western North America.
One of the more interesting items (to me) is a four- by eight-foot slab of sandstone loaded with actual fossil bones.
There is also a children’s learning and activity area with excavation activities focusing on the work of paleontologists and geologists
Dinosaurs – The Lost World is one of the most up to date exhibits featuring the current state of knowledge of this remarkable period in Earth history.
