Dinosaur Exhibits

Age of the Dinosaur
Exhibit @ Discovery Science Place

Discovery Science Place will host “Age of the Dinosaur” a 2,500-square-foot exhibit featuring animatronic, prehistoric creatures, transporting visitors back to the prehistoric era when giant animals roamed the earth, swam in the seas and soared in the sky.

A nod to Discovery Science Place's grand opening 20 years ago (when dinosaurs were also the featured attraction), this exhibit will have you face-to-face with a Tyrannosaurs Rex, marveling at the site of a long-necked Apatosaurus, and watching the skies for the ever-present Pteranodon. Each dinosaur is designed to look, move and sound so realistic you might have to take a second look! The animatronic dinosaurs set in accurate scenic landscapes and the hands-on activities make this exhibition enjoyable, entertaining and educational for the entire family.

Sea Rex
Dome Show @ Center for Earth & Space Science Education at TJC

While at CESSE, experience a wondrous adventure from the dinosaur age with "Sea Rex : Journey to a Prehistoric World." Join Julie, an imaginative young woman, as she travels from a modern-day aquarium to the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. Explore an amazing underwater universe inhabited by larger-than-life creatures -- including the powerful Liopleurodon, long-necked Elasmosaurus and gigantic Shonisaurus -- which were ruling the seas before dinosaurs conquered the earth. Thanks to state-of-the-art ultra-photorealistic imagery, see science come alive in a unique and entertaining manner. Immerse yourself in a lost age, 200 million years back in time, and get ready for a face-to-face encounter with the T-Rex of the seas! Learn more about this show at
