Jurassic World exhibit features life-size animatronic dinosaurs
A new exhibit is letting Jurassic World fans get up close and personal with dinosaurs — animatronic dinosaurs, that is.
Jurassic World: The Exhibition, which is coming to The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia in November, will simulate a visit to the titular theme park from the 2015 blockbuster film starring Chris Pratt, NBCUniversal and Imagine Exhibitions announced Tuesday.
Visitors will “travel” to Isla Nublar, where they can see the creation lab, learn about the real-world science surrounding dinosaur DNA, enter the raptor training paddock, and, yes, encounter a T-rex.
The dinos were designed by Creature Technology Company in collaboration with paleontologist Jack Horner, who served as a paleontological adviser on the film.
The exhibition first opened in Melbourne, Australia in March. It will open at The Franklin Institute for its North American Premiere on Nov. 25 and will close in April 2017. Tickets go on sale Sept. 10.
