Triceratops from NY World's Fair

Field review by the editors.

Louisville, Kentucky

Along with a Brontosaurus and T. rex, this 30-foot-long fiberglass beast was one of the star dinosaurs of the "Sinclair Dinoland" exhibit at the 1964-65 New York World's Fair. In the 1970s the Triceratops again became a popular attraction when it was moved to the Louisville Museum of Natural History and Science. But the museum went through several shake-ups and name changes, and in the early 2000s the Triceratops was banished. It now sits, weather-worn but still impressive, in an outdoor storage area in the city's industrial district.
