Walk through time with Matthew Carrano, Curator of Dinosauria, as he explores the history and special effects of dinosaurs in popular film. Whether campy or surreal, scary or comical, these specially-selected film clips reveal how movie dinosaurs have inspired audiences (including scientists) for the better part of a century.

Before or after, spend time checking out the new David H. Koch Hall of Fossils - Deep Time after hours without the daytime crowd!
