Every year, the Academy celebrates all things prehistoric during Paleopalooza, a two-day festival of fossils! On March 2 and 3, 2019, Academy members and visitors got an exclusive look at some rarely exhibited and wonderful fossils and type specimens collected by Academy paleontologists. They learned about trilobites, saw a dinosaur re-imagined in chalk on an enormous chalkboard, watched live shows, took guided tours of Dinosaur Hall, hunted for fossils, made dinosaur farms from Lego bricks and more. Check out some highlights from the weekend!
