Archaeopteryx has arrived in Sugar Land!

Last week a version of the show Archaeopteryx: Icon of Evolution‘ arrived at the Houston Museum of Natural Science at Sugar Land.  There are around 70 authentic fossils on display including the Geosaurs, Guitar Fish, several fossilized corals, insects, fish, plants and a cast of the Thermopolis Archaeoptertyx.

Check out the HMNS exhibit in Focus On: The Thermopolis Archaeopteryx [Pete Larson] from HMNS on Vimeo.

There have been lots of posts in the past year on the Archaeopteryx show here on the blog so take some time to refresh your memory on all there is to know!  And then come down the HMNS at Sugar Land to see these amazing and one of a kind pieces for yourself!

About Bryanna

Bryanna has been with the museum for a few years now in the Collections department (and no, that’s not a part of the accounting department that hounds you for money!) helping take care of the museum’s artifacts, and installing special exhibitions. She never expected to work in a museum until she found a Master’s program in Museum Studies and changed career paths, and only at HMNS does she get to see and experience such a wide range of specimens and exhibits! When not at one of the museum’s many buildings she can usually be found quilting, reading a book, or buying shoes.
