Details

A newly discovered trove of remarkably preserved fossils, found at Corral Bluffs near Colorado Springs by paleontologists from the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, has painted a vivid picture of how Earth recovered after the devastating asteroid impact 66 million years ago that wiped out the dinosaurs.


This discovery is a watershed scientific moment, and the Museum has created a brand-new bilingual pop-up exhibit to bring the discovery to life. See some of the very best fossils from the site. Handle real concretion rocks, that contain fossils, and replicas of fossils important to the discovery. Experience the discovery on a multimedia storytelling wall that tells about this remarkable find, and participate in hands-on experiments at the Science Behind the Scenes table.
