NEW YORK (PIX11) — Pterosaurs: Flight in the Age of Dinosaurs is open and running through January 4, 2015 at the American Museum of Natural History.

The show features several full-size models, including a Tropeognathus mesembrinus, with a wingspan of more than 25 feet, which will greet visitors at the entrance to the exhibition.

There’s also a recreation of the smallest pterosaur known—a creature about the size of a sparrow.

You can also “pilot” a flying pterosaur over a virtual prehistoric landscape in a whole-body interactive exhibit that uses motion-sensing technology.

There are also replicas, videos and real fossils from rare pterosaurs—some of them never before displayed in the U.S.
