Planet Dinosaur at Fernbank MNH



I am posting the following for Fernbank MNH in Atlanta:

PLANET DINOSAUR--Where the future and the past collide.
Planet Dinosaur will open on April 28, running through December 31.  A
collection of dinosaur skeletons, cast from fossils at the Beijing Museum and
never seen outside of China, is the focal point of this 7,000 square foot
exhibition.  A young _Bactrosaurus_, a _Velociraptor_, and a _Tyrannosaurus
rex_ skull among many others are sure to amaze, enthrall, and educate.
