Dinosaur Explorer at the MOSH

Dinosaur Explorer is an all-new traveling exhibition that explores the wildest, wackiest, and most wonderous dinosaurs, and examines human physiology through the lens of these magnificent creatures. Although they lived millions of years before us, dinosaurs—just like us—adapted to not only survive, but to thrive on planet earth. As such, paleontologists believe that dinosaurs shared many things in common with humankind, and, as astounding as it may seem, lived daily lives that may be quite familiar. Whether it be feeding or family dynamics, intelligence or interpersonal relationships, Dinosaur Explorer examines the ways that environmental, biological, and behavioral circumstances influenced dinosaur daily life, and asks: where do we see similarities in our world today?

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email mindy@kidsoutandabout.com so we can update it immediately.

Through a series of dynamic displays that feature advanced animatronic dinosaurs, authentic casts and actual fossils, and highly interactive hands-on activities, visitors will learn the science behind dinosaur adaptations and understand the connections humans share with our prehistoric predecessors. As they move through a series of vibrant vignettes, visitors will discover what modern paleontology knows about the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous periods—as well as what remains uncertain. They will be challenged to imagine how through small changes—such as tooth form or brain sizes—paleontologists have completely altered the world’s understanding of these incredible creatures’ success. And just like a scientist, guests will be empowered to hypothesize about prehistoric life by piecing together paleonteological and biological clues.
