Life-size prehistoric creatures lurk between the palm trees, picnic tables, and jungle gyms of a forested Plaza in Concepción, Chile’s second largest city.
Since 1980, Plaza Acevedo has been home to the Museo de Historia Natural, Concepción’s natural history museum that dates back to 1902. In 2008 the museum installed several full-size fiberglass dinosaurs, and the foliage of the Plaza was re-landscaped to create a habitat for the giant beasts—so much so, the park is now more commonly known as La Plaza de Dinosaurios (Dinosaur Plaza) or simply, La Plaza Jurásica (Jurassic Plaza).
