Hall of Paleontology

Permanent Collection

The Paleo hall is a fabulous place to visit! Arranged in chronological order, it features several dinos including a Triceratops, Ankylosaurus, and Stegosaurus, as well as many exquisite fossils from the Paleozoic era. The large collection of Trilobites, extinct Arthropods, Stenopterygius, Holzmaden, and a sea crocodile will fascinate any patron.

Please help us to preserve our collections for the next generation by not using flash when taking personal pictures at HMNS and at HMNS Sugar Land. Exposure to strong lights over time causes fading and deterioration of most artifacts and specimens.

Flash photography is ONLY allowed in the Grand Hall and the rainforest of the Cockrell Butterfly Center.

Selfie sticks are not allowed anywhere in HMNS, HMNS Sugar Land and the George Observatory.

For press and any commercial photo shoots, please contact the Public Relations dept.
