Millions of years ago, dinosaurs were seemingly larger-than-life creatures that roamed the Earth before our early relatives ever did.
Fast-forward to our present day world, and people are still entranced by dinosaurs and their domination over the Mesozoic landscape. They have even infiltrated pop culture references as they continue to fascinate with their immensity – both in size, and in their diversity.
Now, you can get the next best thing to traveling back in time to the prehistoric age.
Go on a journey to the land before time as The Mind Museum hosts its newest spectacle, the international traveling exhibition Dinosaurs Around the World – Passport to Pangea. Supported in part by Mastercard, the exhibition was launched on the Museum’s 5th year of bringing science and wonder closer to the general public, and will run from September 1, 2017 to March 2, 2018.
Your passport to Pangea
Dive right in and get your passport ready for a tour to Pangea, the original supercontinent from 270 million years ago when the continents we know today were merged together. Discover the life and times of the dinosaurs with the full experience of learning about their habitat, diet, and about nature and events that scattered the dinosaurs and made them different from one another.
Who exactly are some of the dinosaurs you’ll get to meet? You’ll first be welcomed by the Amargasaurus – a plant-eater that makes use of its long neck with notably tall spines to feed on plants high up in the trees and down low on the ground. Have a face-to-face encounter with the three-horned-faced Triceratops, the small but agile Velociraptor with its large retractable claw, and the toothless Oviraptor who sports a beak and a bony crest on its head. Once you reach the Canopy Plaza, you’ll get to learn a thing or two from the Spinosaurus, also known as the world’s largest carnivorous dinosaur. This is just the tip of the iceberg, so check out the exhibition for yourself to find out more about the rest!
Aside from the advanced life-like animatronics, Dinosaurs Around the World also features an extensive collection of fossils, authentic dino casts, and various activities designed to make everyone experience being a paleontologist for a day.
This world-renowned exhibition has gone to many places since 2015, right before making its pit stop in Manila this 2017. It managed to share all about the world of dinosaurs to the curious over at Toledo, Ohio’s “Imagination Station”, at Florida’s “South Florida Science Center and Aquarium”, and over at New York’s “Clinton Presidential Center”.
Make sure to book yourself a trip back in time to meet Dinosaurs Around the World while it’s in Manila, over at The Mind Museum!
