The Museum Center said the famous science guru got a tour of the new Dinosaur Hall by Dr. Glenn Storrs, the curator of vertebrate paleontology. After a two-and-a-half year restoration, Union Terminal has reopened to the public for the holiday season.

The Dinosaur Hall gallery features unique and extraordinary dinosaur specimens on display for the first time, like the fearsome Torvosaurus, a 35-foot predator you won’t find anywhere else in the world.

“An interactive globe shows the shift of continents over 600 million years, letting you trace Cincinnati’s dip into a tropical sea and reemergence onto dry land,” the museum announced.

The museum is introducing new exhibits in both the Cincinnati History Museum and Museum of Natural History & Science, with more to open in phases in the months and years to come. In the rotunda, the Rookwood Ice Cream Parlor will return within the next few months.

The OMNIMAX Theater is scheduled to reopen in late December. Learn more.
