博物馆简介

  

 

  辽宁古生物博物馆是经辽宁省人民政府批准、由辽宁省国土资源厅和沈阳师范大学共建的、我国迄今规模最大的古生物博物馆。本馆占地面积19000 m2,建筑面积15000 m2,建筑外形上象一个庞大的地质体和一个巨型恐龙巧妙的融合:断层将地质体垂直切割,火山熔岩自上而下奔泻流淌,带我们走进辽宁30多亿年地质历史的长河。南侧的拱形建筑代表辽宁巨大恐龙的身躯,中间的钢架代表恐龙脊柱,两侧是恐龙的肋骨,而球体是恐龙蛋。21根恐龙肋骨的钢架象征辽宁人民21世纪挺拔的身躯,预示着辽宁美好的前程。

  辽宁古生物博物馆以科学性为主,以展示地史时期生命起源与演化为主线,以介绍30亿年来辽宁“十大古生物群”为重点,具有鲜明的国际化特色。本馆共设8个展厅16个展区。第3厅介绍30亿年来“辽宁十大古生物群”,其中,鞍山群早期生命、燕辽生物群、热河生物群、辽宁的古人类是四大“亮点”。第4厅介绍世界著名的“热河生物群”,带大家走进一亿多年前辽西的“恐龙王国”、“古鸟世界”、“花的摇篮”等奇妙的史前世界。第8厅是气势磅礴的“辽宁大型恐龙厅”, 8件产自辽宁的大型恐龙首次集体“亮相”,其中长达15米的“辽宁巨龙”是我馆首次发现和研究的最新成果,也是第一次与我国和世界的观众见面。

  辽宁古生物博物馆的建立是辽宁省文化教育事业和我国古生物学事业的一件大事。它将对提高辽宁省的科学普及水平、加强辽宁古生物化石的保护与研究、以及促进辽宁省的国际交流与文化旅游事业发展等发挥重要作用。本馆的建立对中国古生物学事业和博物馆事业的发展也是一个“功在千秋”的壮举。

 

 

Paleontological Museum of Liaoning (PMOL) is co-established by the Depatment of Land and Resources, Liaoning Province (DLRL) and the Shenyang Normal University (SNU). This museum is to date the largest paleontological museum in China, with a building area of 15000 m2 Its external form appears like a fusion of a giant dinosaur with a large geological body. The vaulted structure on the south represents a dinosaur, and the steel frame as dinosaur’s vertebrate column and ribs. The sphere in the front represents a dinosaur egg.

The PMOL is science-based, aiming to demonstrate the history of the origin and evolution of life, highlighting the “Top Ten Paleontological Biotas” of Liaoning that span a geological time of more than 3 billion years. The “Top Ten Biotas of Liaoning” emphasize on the Early Life of Anshan Biota, Yanliao Biota, Jehol Biota and Ancient Man of Liaoning. The “Jehol Biota” in Hall 4 brings visitors back into a prehistoric world over a hundred million years ago. The magnificent “Liaoning Giant Dinosaur Hall” displays eight giant dinosaurs from Liaoning. Among them, the latest scientific achievement of the PMOL, Liaoningotitan with 15 meters long, shows to the public for the first time.

The establishment of the Liaoning Museum of Paleontology marks a milestone in the cultural endeavors in Liaoning and the initiatives of paleontology in China. The museum will play an important role in promoting paleontological research, science popularization, fossil protection, and international exchange and collaboration in Liaoning Province.
