Dinosaur lovers will get a new chance to delve into prehistoric times, when the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC reopens its new exhibit, Hall of Fossils – Deep Time.

The exhibition will open on 8 June, showcasing about 700 different fossil specimens across the new 31,000 sq ft hall, including its centerpiece, the Tyrannosaurus rex fossil. There, visitors can learn about ancient ecosystems, learn about the evolution of life, and according to the Smithsonian “discover how human actions are driving Earth’s rapidly changing climate today much like long-ago geological events did in the past. Learn how to interpret the scientific evidence of the past and present, and see how the choices we make today will live far beyond us, in deep time.”
