Drive Traffic with Touchable Dinosaurs!

Crossing the threshold of this exhibit means traveling back in time to explore the Age of the Dinosaurs in Dinosaurs: Land of Fire and Ice™! As visitors move through the exhibit, they encounter unfamiliar landscapes, touchable dinosaurs of all shapes and sizes, and opportunities to investigate clues about what the dinosaurs left behind.

The exhibit features three distinct sections: Land of Fire (a warm dinosaur habitat), Land of Ice (a cold dinosaur habitat), and a Field Research Station (complete with a Big Dig component). When playing in this engaging environment, children experience countless opportunities for showcasing critical thinking skills such as: questioning, reasoning, theorizing, observing, contemplating, planning, executing and synthesizing.

Host benefits include:
  • Attendance-boosting appeal
  • Exclusive opportunity to offer fully touchable dinosaurs

“The Dinos exhibit is awesome. We’ve had quite an increase in our numbers since it opened – people are loving it!  You guys did an excellent job, you really have out-done yourselves again. It’s the perfect dinosaur exhibit for a children’s museum and that’s what we were wanting here. This is really one of the finest traveling exhibits – if not the finest traveling exhibit – that we’ve ever had.”
— Children’s Museum of Memphis
“The dinosaurs and exhibit environments are beautiful! The exhibit increased our attendance 32% in the first few days and held a 17% increase overall.”
— Rebecca Jones, director of education, Austin Children’s Museum
