Sternberg Museum of Natural History


category : Museums
Sternberg Museum of Natural History Within the four story domed museum, you will find a recreated day 88 million years ago when the mighty Tyrannosaurus haunted the land and Kansas was covered by an inland sea.

Visitors will be able to walk among several animated life-sized dinosaurs in a fully restored environment and experience the life of some of the most spectacular creatures that ever lived. Under the Kansas seaway, visitors come face to face with giant sea-swimming lizards and fish that lived millions of years ago.

The unique feature exhibit is a 10,000 sq. ft. walk through diorama. Visitors will walk through the Kansas Sea, exploring the environment that produced the rocks and fossils of western Kansas. On display will be the fossils for which the museum is famous, including the 14 foot long "fish within a fish."

Children will be able to enjoy a hands-on experience in the Discovery Room. Specimens from the museum's collection are included along with live animals and will be able to participate in a dinosaur dig.
