In advance of the Society for Vertebrate Paleontology convention, NMMNHS plans to revisit its extensive collection with a new, Back to Bones exhibition, highlighting some of its most spectacular vertebrate fossils – the result of over 30 years of collecting efforts. The exhibit will be up for at least a year starting on or about Oct. 17th.
“Our museum has amassed some fantastic fossils over the last 30 years,” said Thomas A. Williamson, Paleontology Curator at NMMNHS and co-chair of the SVP convention. “Everything from 300-million-year-old fish and early reptiles, dinosaur skulls from near the end of the Age of Reptiles, to Ice Age mammals. The SVP convention affords us a chance to really show off some of our most prized specimens.”
