Two fighting dinosaurs with trees in the background

Evolving Planet takes visitors on an awe-inspiring journey through 4 billion years of life on Earth, from single-celled organisms to towering dinosaurs and our extended human family. Unique fossils, animated videos, hands-on interactive displays, and recreated sea- and landscapes help tell the compelling story of evolution—the single process that connects everything that’s ever lived on Earth.

If you’re looking for dinosaurs, this is the place! Evolving Planet features an expanded dinosaur hall including every major group, the worlds they lived in, and what we’ve learned from the T. rex, SUE. And throughout the exhibition, Field Museum scientists show visitors what we’re still learning about the past, present, and future of life on Earth.
