FINAL WEEK: Ultimate Dinosaurs
January 8 - January 15
Ultimate Dinosaurs goes beyond familiar dinosaurs to showcase some of the most spectacular fossils unearthed in recent years.
Why were southern dinosaurs so bizarre and unique from their better-known North American counterparts? There are lots of ways in the exhibition to dig into this question. Highlights:
- Seventeen fully articulated skeletons and dozens of fossils and casts, including dinosaurs discovered by scientists from the Denver Museum of Nature & Science.
- Stunning video projections and life-size murals that take you back to prehistoric time.
- Video projection of sauropods that gives you an opportunity to walk (and run!) alongside life-size dinosaurs.
- Augmented reality (AR) viewers that guests look through to examine the skeleton of Carnotaurus, laying skin over the bones and showing what it looked like in real life.
- Fossil Prep Lab activities to try out fossil preparation techniques on special fossil casts and let kids imagine and explore with some tools of the trade.
- Stations with interactive projection microscopes, touchable specimens, puzzles, and more.
- Microfossil sifter that demonstrates how paleontologists search for tiny fossils.
- Digital continental drift game to reassemble the continent of Gondwana and gather facts about the southern hemisphere and their prehistoric residents.
- 3D printer creating replicas of real fossils.
- Dinosaur Adventure Guide to use at embossing stations throughout the exhibition.
[Exhibition is included with Museum admission.]
