Pterosaurs: Flight in the Age of Dinosaurs
UNITED STATES
NEW YORK  •  American Museum of Natural History  •  Until 4 January 2015
 

Pterosaurs: Flight in the Age of Dinosaurs, a new exhibition at the American Museum of Natural History explores the world of these extraordinary flying reptiles, the first back-boned animals to evolve powered flight. As long as dinosaurs walked the Earth, pterosaurs—ranging from the size of a sparrow to that of a small airplane—ruled the skies until they went extinct 66 million years ago.

The largest exhibition ever presented in the United States about these animals, Pterosaurs highlights the latest research by Museum scientists and leading paleontologists around the world. It also features rare pterosaur fossils from Germany, the United States, and Brazil as well as casts, life-size models, videos, and interactive exhibits that immerse visitors in the mechanics of pterosaur flight.

The exhibition is overseen by Curator Mark Norell, chair of the Division of Paleontology, who conducts pterosaur research in Romania, China, and Mongolia, with Co-curator Alexander Kellner, a Museum research associate and paleontologist at the Museu Nacional in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
