Who we are

Ed Leith Cretaceous Menagerie

  • Take a journey to the Cretaceous Period of 145 million to 65 million years ago, when the world was very different from that of today. The menagerie features complete skeletal replicas of four gigantic creatures from that fascinating time.

    As you enter the menagerie, imagine that you're stepping into a Cretaceous landscape. An aggressive tyrannosaurid dinosaur comes at you! Look up and envision the sea, with three monsters swimming above you: the world's largest turtle, a vicious fish, and a formidable mosasaur (“sea lizard”). A stairway leads to the balcony, where you can join the sea creatures and get a bird's-eye view of the dinosaur.
