Dinosaurs Around the World Exhibit
January 18, 2020 - May 10, 2020
DINOSAURS AROUND THE WORLD NOW OPEN THROUGH MAY 10!!! Embark on a globetrotting expedition around the world to discover the Age of Reptiles! Mobile, AL – The Exploreum Science Center presents Dinosaurs Around the World from January 18, 2020 to May 10, 2020. Dinosaurs Around the World takes you back in time on a dinosaur adventure and a tour of an Earth very different from today – a time before the continents as we know them existed, when lush landscapes covered Africa and greenery was the norm in Antarctica! With advanced animatronics, a multi-layered narrative, fossils, authentic casts, cutting-edge research and immersive design elements you’ll experience the Age of Reptiles as it comes to life! Dinosaurs Around the World invites you to grab your prehistoric passport to Pangea and discover how plate tectonics, land bridges, and volcanic activity allowed dinosaurs to disperse to all corners of the globe, giving each of the seven continents its own unique selection of these giant reptiles. During their 172 million year reign, dinosaurs adapted into a variety of forms due to the conditions of the areas in which they lived. The exhibition includes examples such as the mighty T. rex of North America, the swift Velociraptor of the Gobi Desert, the massive herbivore Amargasaurus form the tropical jungles of South America and ten others! “Dinosaurs Around the World will transport visitors back in time to the unrecognizable landscape of Pangea in a playful and educational way,” said Tom Zaller, President & CEO of Imagine Exhibitions. “I am proud of all that our team at Imagine Exhibitions has accomplished with our partners to achieve that goal.” In addition to advanced animatronics, Dinosaurs Around the World also features information about the geologic time scale, geology, geography, and climatology. The exhibition poses questions to the visitor about the reign of the dinosaurs and helps them to discover how dinosaurs lived on each continent, how they interacted with each other, how geography impacted their behavior and diets, and what the continents were really like at the time. Dinosaurs Around The World is sponsored by Hargrove, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama, Mobile County District 2, AMNS Calvert, WKRG-5, Spire, Sweet Home Alabama, and Delaney Foundation.
