July 1 - September 3, 2012
You'll see huge, life-like, cutting-edge animatronic versions of dinosaurs — each outfitted with cameras, sensors and artificial intelligence — react to your every mood. Travel back in time 67 million years to explore the world of the cretaceous period when the infamous T.rex roamed the earth. It is sure to be a heart-pounding encounter and amaze anyone who comes near.
The show is not scripted — no two visitors will have the same experience. The colossal dinosaurs track guests in real-time, responding based on the actions of each individual, and even interact among themselves. Experience firsthand what it's like to be stalked by prehistoric creatures as they react to your every move! Included in this exhibition are T.rex, a Triceratops adult and its nest of eggs/juveniles, and two Velociraptors.
This exhibition also features a "Dinosaur Dig" for children, a special display of fossils and other specimens from its own collection, as well as a historical timeline.
Join us for our Family Fun Opening on Sunday, July 1.
On Family Day, we will open at 11 a.m. for Members Only with special hands-on activities for kids 3-13. The Museum will open to the rest of the public, as usual, at noon, and many of these activities will still be available. In addition to the Dinosaur Dig, a special gallery will be filled with hands-on activities for kids, where they can build their own dinosaurs with special building sets, watch a video on dinosaurs, read books, and have a great time with “all-things dinosaurs.” Regular admission prices will apply.
The exhibit was created by KumoTek Robotics in collaboration with Kokoro Dreams and Dynamite Films.
Made possible through the support of McDonald's with additional support of GiggleWorks. Promotional support by Signs & More.
