The HSU Natural History Museum has a new look to our online presence!  Thank you to HSU Marketing & Communications Web Team for working with the museum to create our new site.
Did mosasaurus, a dinosaur cousin, lay soft eggs or give life birth? The answer to this question was found in two different fossils.
We will remain closed through the summer in line with HSU. The NHM plans to reopen early Fall (in person if safe, or virtually if need be).
