Map
318 Convair Dr., Toronto Pearson International Airport, Toronto, Toronto L5P 1B2, Canada

Travelers kill stopover time with a trip back to the late-Jurassic period (150 million years ago). Pearson's Terminal 1 is home to a diorama showcasing two models cast from the Royal Ontario Museum's collection of dinosaur fossils. Set against a backdrop of fossil-rich sedimentary rock, the installation depicts an Othnielia Rex, a small and delicate plant eater, being pursued by an Allosaurus, a large and formidable predator. The display concept and installation was overseen by ROM paleontology curators, and was crafted to museum standards.
