"Dinosaur Dynasty: Discoveries From China" brings together nearly two dozen specimens excavated in that country in the last century, and "Sue Discovery Dig" allows aspiring paleontologists to unearth a full-sized replica of the museum's $8.4 million T. Rex, Sue, from a giant sandbox outside the museum.

Either make it fully Chinese (Huhehaote), or leave it Mongolian (in which case Hohhot is probably a good idea for spelling... well... it's the only spelling I've ever seen, so I can't say anything).

"People tend to think all dinosaurs lived all over the world at once," said the Field Museum's Cheryl Bardoe, a senior project administrator who added that the presumption is false. "This is a great opportunity for people to meet dinosaurs they haven't met before."
