Houston Museum of Natural Science: Here Be Dinosaurs (Soon)

This big, empty space? Soon to be filled with....dinosaurs! And, hopefully, delighted kids taking the first steps towards loving science and history.

This is a sneak peek of the inside of the Houston Museum of Natural Science's soon-to-be-opened Paleontology Hall, which will house, among other things, 26 huge dinosaur models.

The hall is two stories tall and the size of a football field, the museum says. It's expected to open this summer next summer, and here's a time-lapse video of construction.
