In the exhibition Pterosaurs: Flight in the Age of the Dinosaurs visitors can see rare fossils, life-size models, and experience hands-on interactives that bring these ancient animals to life. Want to take Pterosaurs with you? Two iPad apps let you learn more at the push of a button. 

With the free Pterosaurs exhibition iPad app, adapted from the 2014 exhibition, get an in-depth look at these fascinating flying reptiles and the latest fossil discoveries that reveal how these animals walked, flew, ate, and more. 

Also make sure to download the companion app for Pterosaurs: The Card Game! This game and app explores amazing ancient reptiles and their food chains.
