In March 2008, the Burpee Museum of Natural History will host the Annual Paleofest, where 10 of the worldÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s best-known dinosaur-hunters and paleontologists will gather to tell dinosaur tales and host interactive workshops with families, professionals and dinosaur lovers of all ages.
Other features of the event include the unveiling of Homer’s skull. No, not that Homer, but BurpeeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s newest dinosaur discovery, a juvenile Triceratops. In addition to the unveiling, it will be revealed why the Homer field site is such an important discovery.
A new one-of-a-kind dinosaur exhibit is opening soon at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh, Pa. Dubbed “Dinosaurs in Their Time”, the exhibit is hailed as “the first permanent exhibit in the world to showcase dinosaurs in scientifically accurate, immersive environments spanning the Age of Dinosaurs.”
The exhibit, which opens to the public on Nov. 21, showcases dinosaurs in precise reconstructions of their ecosystems, interacting with their environments and the other animals and plants that lived alongside them.
“Visitors will get the feeling of literally stepping back in time and walking among the dinosaurs,” said Dr. Matt Lamanna, the museumÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Assistant Curator of Vertebrate Paleontology, principle dinosaur researcher, and lead scientific adviser for Dinosaurs in Their Time. “WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve painstakingly recreated the worlds of the dinosaurs, from the plants they ate and walked on to the animals that shared their respective ecosystems; everything that is displayed together actually lived together. This is the first time so many dinosaurs have been shown like this in a museum.”
The IMAX movie Dinosaurs Alive! premiers at the Orlando Science Center (OSC) on Friday.
