The Museum's fossil collection is world-renowned and includes not only famous dinosaurs but also plants, marine reptiles and Ice Age mammals, to name a few. 

These collections are essential in helping scientists reconstruct and understand what life on Earth was like millions of years ago. But how does a fossil get from under the ground to on display in the gallery?
