Dinosaurs and Fossils Gallery: South Carolina Coastline Fossils


Due to safety concerns around COVID-19, the Science Museum of Minnesota is temporarily closed to the public.

About this Experience

This exhibit of Late Oligocene animals is the only such group anywhere. Since the early 1980s, the paleontology departments of the Science Museum of Minnesota and the Charleston Museum have collaborated in studies of the little-known fossil fauna of South Carolina.
