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.

Triceratops from NY World's Fair

901 S. 15th St., Louisville, KY
South side of the city, in the industrial district. From US Hwy 60/W. Broadway turn south at the BP station onto S. 15th St. Drive three blocks. You'll see the large brown Great Northern Mfg building on the left. The parking lot is just beyond it, on the left. The Triceratops is at the back of the lot, next to the building. The gate to the lot is open during business hours, but it is private property so please be respectful if you stop by to take a picture.
Gate open during business hours. (Call to verify) Local health policies may affect hours and access.
