Dinosaurs have made their biggest invasion ever in San Diego's Balboa Park. Thirty two species of dinosaurs from all corners of the earth, some never seen before in North America, are on exhibit at the San Diego Natural History Museum in The Dinosaurs of Jurassic Park: The Lost World, one of the largest traveling dinosaur exhibitions in the world.
The exhibition also highlights the proper place in dinosaur evolution held by the major dinosaur groups, which date back 225 million years to the Triassic Period, followed by the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods, to their extinction 65 million years ago. Various theories given for the disappearance of dinosaurs are explored in the Extinction Theatre, hosted by actor Jeff Goldblum. Trained presenters are on hand to answer your questions throughout the exhibition hall.
