THE DINOS ARE BACK!

From October 5th, 20011, one of the main attractions of Vienna's Natural History Museum is re-opened: the newly designed and modernized dinosaur hall. A life-sized animated model of an Allosaurus is just one of many highlights. Modern computer animations (produced by 7reasons,© NHM) and interactive displays give an impressive demonstration of life on Earth over 65 million years ago. Not only are giant skeletons - e.g., from diplodocus, iguanodon, and allosaurus - on show, but also an impressive multimedia station on the giant asteroid impact that led to the extinction of the dinosaurs.
