Mythic Creatures: Dragons, Unicorns and Mermaids

Wednesday, March 19, 2008 to Monday, September 1, 2008

This exhibition requires a special ticket.

Discover the legend and the science behind some of the most spectacular creatures ever invented.  The world is full of stories about brave heroes, magical events and fantastic beings. For thousands of years, humans everywhere—sometimes inspired by living animals or even fossils—have brought mythic creatures to life in stories, songs and works of art. Today these creatures, from the powerful dragon to the soaring phoenix, continue to thrill, terrify, entertain and inspire us.
