Event Description

Hadrosaurus returns to New Jersey! As the world's first nearly complete dinosaur skeleton, its discovery in Haddonfield, NJ caught the world by storm – it revolutionized the science and helped propel southern New Jersey to the "center" of the paleontological world. 

The exhibit features a 25 foot long cast of Hadrosaurus foulkii plus a life-size, hand-drawn life-like illustration on a chalk board. The role of paleo-artists and the study of nature in the development of modern theories of dinosaur anatomy, behavior, and more is also examined in this exhibit. This year we also commemorate the 25th anniversary of Hadrosaurus becoming the State dinosaur!
