Visitors welcomed a new permanent installation in the Orton Geological Museum, Cryolophosaurus ellioti, at an open house on October 7. The 7-foot dinosaur replica was brought to Ohio State largely through generous donations from the community during a crowdfunding campaign last spring. Cryolophosaurus ellioti was first discovered and identified by Ohio State Professor David Elliot while he was working in Antarctica. Learn more here.
