Cranbrook's new exhibit is one for the sharks

Cranbrook Institute of Science has unveiled its new exhibit called Megalodon - Largest Shark that Ever Lived.

The 5,000-square-foot traveling exhibit highlights the evolution, biology and misconceptions of the enormous prehistoric shark that once cruised all the world's oceans. The traveling exhibit will be open until January 3, 2017.

As unique as megalodon was, so is the exhibit that tells the story of this enormous creature. The exhibition showcases fossil and modern shark specimens as well as full-scale models from several collections.

Visitors enter a full-size sculpture of megalodon through massive jaws and discover this shark's history and the world it inhabited, including its size, structure, diet, lifespan, relatives, neighbors, evolution and extinction.

The exhibition fee, in addition to museum admission, is $6 for adults (public), $5 for adults (members), and $4 for children and seniors 65+. For more information on hours and pricing, visit
