Interested in what we're discovering? We regularly live stream and tweet direct from our annual expeditions to public audiences and can answer your questions.


Our team of paleontologists, students, and volunteers conduct annual expeditions to collect dinosaur and other vertebrate fossils from around the world.  If you're interested in learning more about paleontological fieldwork, want to be the first to know about new dinosaur discoveries, or just want to connect with the expedition team you've come to the right place.  We live stream back to the museum from the field to give you real time updates on our expeditions,

connecting you to real science, in real time. 


Come to the Daily Planet Theater to talk with us live from our expeditions between May and December each year. Ask us your questions and meet one of our scientists.

We also tweet live from our annual expeditions, keeping you up-to-date on the latest discoveries.

The fossils we bring back from our field expeditions are removed from their plaster jackets and prepared live in the Paleontology Research Lab on the 3rd floor of the Nature Research Center wing of the museum. If you visit the lab you can observe our staff and volunteers hard at work preparing our newly collected fossils for scientific research.
