Tyrannosaurs: Meet the Family • Closing September 4

Tyrannosaurus rexT. rex, for short — is the most recognizable dinosaur in the world. But it’s not the only tyrannosaur you should know. The rest of the tyrannosaur family is sharing the spotlight this summer in Tyrannosaurs: Meet the Family, on display in San Antonio. This exhibition, created by the Australian Museum, brings the latest tyrannosaur discoveries to life and reveals some of the most significant discoveries in paleontology of the past decade.

Antarctic Dinosaurs • Closing September 10

Turn your San Antonio summer into an Antarctic adventure and dig into a breathtaking discovery: dinosaurs! Antarctica today can be a harsh land of ice and snow, but 200 million years ago it was a bountiful, forested habitat where dinosaurs thrived. In Antarctic Dinosaurs, you’ll step back in time to discover the dinosaurs that ruled these now-fossilized forests.
