EXPANSION VIDEO: A Year In 3 Minutes

June 8, 2011

We’ve been watching the new wing construction for over a year now – it’s incredibly exciting to contemplate what’s going to go in this grand new building when it opens in Summer 2012!

Check it out compared to last month and a year ago.

And what will be going in the new Paleo Hall? Most mounted T. rexes anywhere. Quetzalcoatlus bigger than a jet fighter. And lots more.

Even more exciting? Seeing a year’s worth of progress is just over 3 minutes. Warning: as noted by Swamplot, the speed of the time lapse combined with the daily progression of a shadow cast by the parking garage, makes the video a little “flashy.”
