Dinosaurs Around the World Exhibit

Through a multi-layered narrative, visitors will learn about the dispersion of dinosaurs during the splitting of Pangea.

Visitors will experience the Age of Reptiles through:

  • Advanced Animatronics

  • Authentic Casts
  • Cutting edge research
  • Immersive design elements

Young learners will also discover more about the geologic time scale, geology, geography, and climatology. This exhibit provides visitors the chance to experience the pre-historic era while also learning and enjoying the amazing story of the dinosaurs.

From Herman Melville’s “Moby Dick” to Jules Verne’s “Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea,” the ocean has long been a subject of deep wonder and mystery. Today, the ocean remains a mysterious place for most of us, dark and frightening, with tales of sea monsters and leviathans lurking in the deep.
