The 40,000 square foot museum is the first cooperative venture of its kind in the country with traveling exhibits by the American Museum of Natural History.
Merrill Companies, the owner of the development, selected McCownGordon as the construction manager for the project, which sits in the heart of an active mixed-use development.
Exhibits include dinosaurs, lizards, snakes and horses. The museum also has a permanent display of fossils and artifacts, with some specimens rotating regularly. The main lobby display is a full-scale cast of Tyrannosaurus Rex. It also includes a discovery room, also overseen by the American Museum of Natural History, for children ages 5 to 12 to interact with various specimens and artifacts.
