Exhibition Highlights

The Dinosaurs of Jurassic Park: The Lost World celebrates the triumph of the dinosaurs. For more than 150 million years dinosaurs, in many strange and wonderful forms, ruled a changing Earth.

This exhibit reveals the pageant of dinosaur life. Included are the dinosaurs from the film The Lost World and skeletal casts of many newly discovered dinosaurs. Highlights of this traveling exhibition are presentations of the new king of the dinosaurs, Giganotosaurus- bigger than T. rex, and the largest, scientifically accurate dinosaur model ever made-the 70 foot-long Mamenchisaurus.

The Dinosaurs of Jurassic Park: The Lost World also presents the latest evidence on how dinosaurs lived, the world they lived in, and how they died.
