New Trilobite Exhibit Opens

This summer, a new exhibit about the trilobites opened on the third floor of the KU Natural History Museum. The exhibit includes trilobite evolution, morphology (characteristics) and extinction. KU Invertebrate Paleontology staff and faculty, including curator Bruce Lieberman, helped develop the exhibit.  Specimens from the invertebrate paleontology collection are on display.

The museum is open Tuesday-Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sundays, noon to 5 p.m., and is located at 1345 Jayhawk Blvd.
