NEW EXHIBIT OPENING! With Special Talk from Dr. Hans-Dieter Sues*
May 9, 2015 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM
This unique exhibit brings us a snapshot in time of Jurassic life 150 million years ago.
Directly across from the paleontology viewing lab, Snapshots in Time: The Unique Paleofauna of the Solnhofen Limestone showcases some of the worlds rarest Late Jurassic fossils discovered in the Solnhofen Limestone, of southern Germany.
No other locale has produced more iconic fossils from this time period than the Solnhofen Limestone. Rockford’s own Burpee Museum will display some of the most unique fossils from the Solnhofen, on loan from a private collection!
To enhance your experience at the exhibit’s grand opening, Dr. Hans-Dieter Sues, Senior Curator of Paleontology at the Smithsonian Institution: National Museum of Natural History, Washington, DC will be giving a special presentation at 2pm!
Special Talk only from Dr. Hans-Dieter Sues: $5
