Dinosaur Hall - Get Up Close & Personal with T-Rex!
It's one of the first things you will see when you enter the Academy of Natural Sciences: measuring up to 42 feet in length and weighing in at an estimated 7.5 tons, Tyrannosaurus rex was one of the largest predators to ever walk the Earth. This impressive animal is one of many dinosaurs and other Mesozoic creatures you'll encounter in Dinosaur Hall. More than 30 species are represented, about half of which are full skeletal mounts, including Avaceratops, Chasmosaurus, Corythosaurus, Deinonychus, Pachycephalosaurus, Tenontosaurus, and Tylosaurus. While all guests will have access to this room, the 2nd floor will be for our VIP guests only.

Butterflies! A Tropical Garden in Philadelphia.
Butterflies! features a lush, tropical garden filled with colorful plants and a multitude of live butterflies from Central and South America, East Africa, and Southeast Asia. The exhibit will usually have between 60 to 150 butterflies and 20 to 40 different species on any given day. Butterflies generally live for one to two weeks, and we receive new butterflies from around the world each week. It's truly a magical place.
