The Genesis Exhibit

Drawn from the world’s foremost fossil collections, the unprecedented treasury of fossil casts known as THE GENESIS EXHIBIT brings together into one exhibition some of the most exciting finds in the history of paleontology from over a century of worldwide excavations, exhibited as sculptural works of art.

Spanning 4.6 billion years in scope, from the earliest invertebrate marine life, through the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous dinosaurs to saber-toothed cats, this comprehensive collection from the Texas Museum of Natural History’s internationally acclaimed THE GENESIS EXHIBIT dramatically illustrates the awesome story of prehistoric life on Earth.

Displaying casts of rare fossils from the Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia, this prestigious collection includes skeletons, skulls, claws, skin, eggs, insects, and plants gathered from such revered museums as the Smithsonian Institution, The American Museum of Natural History, The Royal Ontario Museum, and the Carnegie Museum, as well as many others.

Seen and admired by millions of people, this famed traveling exhibition is now available direct from its celebrated showings at the World Trade Centers in Boston, San Juan, and Taichung, the Fernbank Museum of Natural History in Atlanta, the Dinosaur Discovery Center at Colorado National Monument, The Texas Museum of Natural History in Austin, and the Natural History Museum of El Paso. These compelling natural artifacts, rarely seen outside of their respective museums, are on view together exclusively in THE GENESIS EXHIBIT and its touring collections.

Depicting the odyssey of life from the oceans to the land and sky, the cast fossil specimens are spectacularly displayed as though works of art on simulated marble and granite pedestals. The exhibition is divided into the 3 geological eras: Paleozoic, Mesozoic, and Cenozoic, each of which is available individually or together as one grand display.

3,500 – 12,000 square feet. Negotiable fee (with deposit) or revenue share plus roundtrip shipping, insurance, and roundtrip expenses for curator during 4 to 5-day installation and takedown. Venues from 3 to 6 months. High security.
