    Ultimate Dinosaurs at the Perot Museum
    Telus World of Science
    Giganotosaurus with mural

    Stomp, stomp, ROARRRR! NBC 5 and The Perot Museum invite you to experience a new breed of exotic dinosaurs starting Saturday, June 23, 2018 through Sunday, January 26, 2019 at The Perot Museum of Nature and Science.

    Funky frills, crazy claws and enormous dinosaurs that would have terrified T. rex are set to put guest eye to eye with 20 exotic dinosaur species from the other side of the world. Not the typical T. rex and Triceratops that most know, these unique dinosaurs were fierce with gigantic skulls, crocodile-like faces and exotic features. Exhibitors will be able to experience technology that will “transport” them to prehistoric times. Highlights will include full-sized skeletons, plus life-sized video projections of the creatures, interactive games, augmented-reality viewers and much more.

    These are not your grandfather’s 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. Ultimate Dinosaurs tells the story of the break-up of supercontinent Pangaea into today’s continents and the amazing diversity of dinosaur species that evolved as a result. Attractions 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.
