Discover Flight, in the Age of Dinosaurs!

They flew with their fingers. They walked on their wings. Big as fighter jet or small as a sparrow, discover pterosaurs, the original fear, in flight in our new summer special exhibition. Close relatives of the dinosaurs, pterosaurs ruled the skies for 150 million years. They were the first animals with a backbone to fly under their own power!
