Virtual- Kansas Museum of History - Virtual Museum After Hours

In the dust of the Gilded Age Bone Wars, two men emerge with a mission to fill the empty halls of the American Museum of Natural History. Kansas-born paleontologist Barnum Brown was one of these men.  Brown helped bring dinosaurs into popular culture through a life of fossil hunting, and, when he unearthed the first T Rex fossil, he forever changed the world of paleontology. In The Monster’s Bones: How the Discovery of T. Rex Changed Our Culture, David K. Randall reveals how a monster of a bygone era ignited a new understanding of our planet and our place within it.
