Museum admission required

We’re so excited to host a taping of +NPR +Colin McEnroe show here on Tuesday, May 17, at 1pm. The topic is dinosaurs and no better place to hold it than the Great Hall under the gaze of the mighty Brontosaurus! Please come watch.

Colin will talk with our experts in paleontology and ornithology: Jacques Gauthier, Daniel Field, and +Richard Kissel. You’ll hear about the dino-chicken, the superduck, Brontosaurus of course and much more. Joining them will be prize-winning author and journalist +Richard Conniff whose new book, “House of Lost Worlds,” is an incredibly fascinating history of the Peabody’s 150 years of scientific adventure, research and discovery.

A new study suggests that volcanic eruptions did not lead to the extinction of the dinosaurs, and has implications for understanding modern climate change.
