CHICAGO (WLS) -- The Field Museum is preparing a new exhibit on Antarctic dinosaurs.

Researchers traveled to areas around Antarctica's Mount Kilpatrick and excavated fossil-bearing rocks to bring back to Chicago.

Among their finds was a 25-foot long dinosaur fossil from the Jurassic Period.

The items will go on display in summer 2018.
