• 3D Virtual Exhibit

    This is a 3d exhbit giving an overview of the areas the museum covers. Not everything you see here can be found at the museum, though most of it can, but it's an opportunity to take some of our ideas out of our heads, and show what we'd like to do.

    Please feel free to run the quick Guided Tour, and then wander around the exhibit on  your own.

    There is not yet any sound activated, but that and other surprises are coming.



  • A "New" Allosaurus

    24 January 2020

    Allosaurus jimmandsi is a new dinosaur named from the Morrison Formation at Dinosaur National Monument in Utah.

    The name has been around for quite awhile, so you may have heard of it before, but ithis is the formal naming and description.

    Though found in Utah, other species found in the same area have been found in Arizona, so it's quite possible this could be added to the dinosaurs of Pinal County. It lived about 5 million years before the more common Allosaurus fragilis.

    A new dinosaur species is named and described about every 7 weeks. There are only about 750 species known, which is just a small fraction of the dinosaurs that probably existed.
