The Mid America Paleontology Society (MAPS) holds its National Fossil Exposition on the WIU campus each spring. The essential information for the 2013 show is:


Friday, April 5th through Sunday, April 7th


8 a.m to 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday

8 a.m. to noon on Sunday


Western Hall, Western Illinois University, Macomb, IL

  To get a flavor for the type of specimens typical of the fossil show watch these short videos taken by Bob Johnson at the 2002 MAPS Show that was held in the University Union Grand Ballroom. The MAPS Show has since outgrown this space and is now in the much larger space of Western Hall.

The videos on this page have background noise but no other audio content.
