Can you dig it? The Perot Museum of Nature and Science
is getting all prehistoric this summer as it celebrates the summer of the dinosaur. From the much-anticipated Ultimate Dinosaurs exhibition making its Texas debut, to summer discounts and extended hours, to all-new dinosaur-themed exhibits, programs, events, films, camps and activities, the Perot Museum is sure to be a dino-mite destination for all ages this summer.
Funky frills? Check. Crazy claws? Check. Enormous dinosaurs that would have terrified T. rex? Check, check, check. Ultimate Dinosaurs puts guests eye to eye with 20 exotic dinosaur species from the other side of the world, with cutting-edge technology that transports them to prehistoric times. Not the typical T. rex and Triceratops that most know, these unique dinosaurs were fierce with gigantic skulls, crocodile-like faces and exotic features. Highlights include full-sized skeletons, plus life-sized video projections of the creatures, interactive games, augmented-reality viewers and much more.
These are not your grandfathers dinosaurs! Based on groundbreaking research from scientists around the world, Ultimate Dinosaurs reveals rarely seen, exotic species from the other side of the world. From the tiny Eoraptor to the massive Giganotosaurus (T. rex's bigger, badder cousin), the exhibition is a fascinating introduction to dinosaurs that are unfamiliar to most North Americans. Presented locally by Highland Capital Management, Ultimate Dinosaurs tells the story of the break-up of supercontinent Pangaea into todays continents and the amazing diversity of dinosaur species that evolved as a result. Highlights include 15 fully articulated dinosaur casts, more than a dozen prehistoric specimens, augmented reality to experience the dinosaurs in the flesh, touchable fossilized dinosaur specimens, hands-on play spaces featuring miniature dinosaur dioramas and more. Presented in English and French (with a Spanish audio guide available), Ultimate Dinosaurs is presented by the Science Museum of Minnesota, supported locally by Hilton Hotels Explore Like a Local program and requires a surcharge for members and non-members.
