Monsters of the Deep
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.
