Prehistoric creatures from the other side of the world meet cutting-edge technology in Ultimate Dinosaurs: A New Breed of Beast. The exhibition features 20 fully articulated dinosaur specimens from unusual locations in the Southern Hemisphere and opens June 1, 2023 at Imagination Station.
Based on new, groundbreaking research from scientists around the world, Ultimate Dinosaurs reveals a new breed of dinosaurs that evolved in isolation in South America, Africa and Madagascar – dinosaurs that are unfamiliar to most North Americans. The exhibition seeks to answer the question: why are southern dinosaurs so unique and bizarre, and why are they so different from their North American counterparts?
Ultimate Dinosaurs also features new technology experiences that bring the specimens to life like never before. “We are thrilled to have dinosaurs back at the science center,” said Lori Hauser, chief executive officer of Imagination Station. “Ultimate Dinosaurs is the epitome of bringing science to life. Rarely-seen specimens and new technology combine to put a modern spin on the classic dinosaur exhibits that we know and love. Visitors of all ages will meet prehistoric species they’ve never seen before and experience what life was like millions of years ago.” Discover the amazing diversity of species that evolved as a result of the break-up of supercontinent Pangaea into the continents that we know today. Explore the ways that continental drift affected the evolution of dinosaurs during the Mesozoic Era, 250-65 million years.
In addition to seeing the specimens, learning more about the adaptations that made them unique and using augmented reality technology to make them come to life, families can expect hands-on activities that will help them explore physical characteristics like crests and frills, stride patterns and more.Event Website | Get Tickets
