From the same team that brought you Hatching The Past: The Great Dinosaur Egg Hunt, now comes Permian Monster: Life before the Dinosaurs. Step back in time 290 million years when bizarre-looking animals dominated life on land and sea, and find out about the greatest extinction the world has ever seen. This unique traveling exhibition brings the past back to life with full size animatronic models of the animals that ruled the world millions of years before the age of dinosaurs, in a time known as the Permian Period. This traveling exhibition blends art and science and showcases an amazing collection of fossils and models from this relatively unknown time period, from giant insects, bizarre looking sharks to strange reptiles with mammal-like characteristics.

Exploreum members get the first glimpse and experience of this extraordinary exhibition on February 10th. Not a member? Join now. (Opens to the general public February 14).
