Brand-New Exhibition Dinosaur Explorer Makes its National Debut at MOSH

Trek back in time this roaring summer to the age of prehistoric reptiles in MOSH’s newest traveling exhibition, Dinosaur Explorer. The exhibit, created by Imagine Exhibitions, presents an interactive adventure that utilizes real fossils, authentic casts, and lively animatronics that will transport you back to prehistoric times. Ancient history isn’t so far away with this immersive experience suitable for all ages.

Don’t let these unusual dinosaurs catch you by surprise. Explore the wildest, wackiest, and most wonderous prehistoric reptiles of all sizes during the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous periods. Learn how these dominating creatures adapted to their ever-changing environment to survive and thrive on our planet. Although these dinosaurs lived millions of years before us, paleontologists believe these clever creatures share many things in common with humans. Dinosaur Explorer examines how environmental, biological, and behavioral circumstances influenced dinosaurs’ daily routines, just as how these external factors can affect the routines humans developed in modern life. This exhibit encourages visitors to view dinosaurs in a new light; the science behind dinosaur adaptations can bring new insight to our own behaviors.

Venture through 24 vibrant, dynamic displays and experience lifelike animatronic dinosaurs. The realistic movements and sounds are driven by advanced animatronic technology that provide a distinctive educational experience. The experiential-learning environment empowers visitors to hypothesize about prehistoric life by piecing together paleontological and biological clues. Highly interactive hands-on activities engage visitors with the science used to build our understanding of dinosaur adaptations. These same scientific tools might be used to help us understand the quirks and behaviors that we find in our own human lives.

Dinosaur Explorer provides visitors with a sense of what Earth was like 165 million years ago and how vast time really is. The mysterious creatures, though extinct, continue to captivate humans after all this time. See the world through the eyes of Earth’s oldest known beasts, and then step into the shoes of modern paleontologists to immerse in a fascinating blend of dinosaurs and science. Journey with the silliest and strangest dinosaurs and discover what you have in common with the creatures that once dominated the world.
