Monsters of the
June 13, 2009 - January 8, 2010
You won't believe your eyes. You won't believe their size.
Monsters of the Deep transported visitors into the underwater world of prehistoric creatures and modern-day aquatic giants. Exhibits featured skeletons and realistically fleshed-out models.
With their incredible teeth, gaping jaws, and long snake-like necks, the bizarre monsters of the ancient seas were unlike anything known today.
In this thrilling prehistoric world, huge carnivorous, marine
reptiles filled the oceans such as sea turtles the size of a car.
Although the creatures of the deep have changed over the past 65
million years, we are still fascinated with the modern marvels of
present day monsters, such as the elusive Giant Squid, fearsome
sharks, and amazing whales. The Museum was pleased to present this
opportunity to experience the scale of these awesome creatures and
learn more about the oceans they inhabit today.
