News Link: Pratt collection to have new space at the Museum of Natural History
This project involved dismantling, moving, cleaning, consolidating, and remounting and reinstalling 11 skeletons and 37 skeletal plaques in their new museum. The specimens that were remounted included: Mammoth, Mastodon, Smilodon, Dire Wolf, Cave Bear, Irish Elk, Moa, Kritosaurus, Titanothere, Eryops, and Edaphosaurus. We had also been given the responsibility to move the world renowned Hitchcock ichnology collection which is comprised of 240 trackways of various sizes. They were moved from their existing display and remounted in the new trackway hall. The largest of these trackways was 10 metres long and weighed well over 1000 kg.
