“Dinosaurs Revealed” at OMSI
August 28 @ 10:00 am - 5:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:00am on Saturday, repeating until August 28, 2021
Journey more than 250 million years back in time at Dinosaurs Revealed at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI), on display through Sept 6. Making its Pacific Northwest premiere, the exhibit blends stunning, lifelike and life-size animatronic dinosaurs (26 in all) with real fossils and full dinosaur skeletons.
Guests are invited to embark on an epic adventure of prehistoric discovery by learning about dinosaurs from world-famous geologic dig sites across what is now North America. They’ll travel through successive periods in Earth’s history, learning about the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous Periods in detail.
Examining North America through the various geologic epochs, the exhibit explores how Earth’s geography, environment, and the climate changed through those periods. Guests will learn how and why dinosaurs—as well as other animals and plants—adapted, changed, and evolved as a result of the world in which they lived.
Dinosaurs Revealed is unique in that it highlights dinosaurs found in what is now North America and draws connections between the land shown in the exhibit and modern dig sites. Visitors will be able to see current dig sites that are studying fossils across North America, and the work it takes to reveal and recover fossilized remains.
The exhibit provides thought-provoking, new insights regarding the latest dinosaur discoveries—how they moved, what they actually looked like and the sounds they made—and how these amazing, prehistoric creatures ruled our planet for approximately 150 million years.
