Discover Dinosaurs with Nat Geo Live

Come see National Geographic Explorer and paleontologist Lindsay Zanno live on stage for a behind-the-scenes look at the evolution of this prehistoric tyrant, with her stories from the field accompanied by epic National Geographic footage and unforgettable imagery.

Each year, Zanno scours the badlands of western North America in search of clues. Along the way, Zanno and her team have discovered many new species—including some of the earliest predecessors of T. rex. Discover how dinosaurs like the T. Rex became an iconic apex predator 66 million years ago at this live event—we’ll even have replica T. rex teeth you can hold!

What's next for the National Geographic Museum?

The National Geographic Museum is an ideal destination for curious people of all ages.

As the Society steps into a new era of exploration, we are transforming our public space, our beloved home of the Explorer, to advance our commitment to exploring, protecting, and illuminating the wonder of our world.

Due to construction, the National Geographic Museum will be temporarily closed as we reimagine our Base Camp experience. For a first look at the new space, as well as regular updates, please visit our Base Camp page.

The Museum store will remain open through construction. Stop by to shop apparel, books, toys, collectibles, and more from the official National Geographic storefront. The store entrance is located at 1145 17th Street NW, Washington, DC 20036.
