June 25th Animatronic Dinosaurs Invade the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University.

June 25th, life-size animatronic dinosaurs invade the Academy for a multi-sensory experience for the whole family. State-of-the-art and scientifically accurate Dinosaurs Unearthed features more than a dozen realistic, full-bodied dinosaurs, as well as skeletons, fossil casts of skulls, claws, and horns, real specimens of mosasaur and spinosaurus teeth, an Oviraptor egg, and the ever-popular coprolite. This exhibit, back by popular demand will include brand-new interactive displays, such as a multi-touch table and a scale that tells you how you measure up to different dinosaurs. A dig site for young paleontologists, a Dino Detective touch-screen quiz, chances to control dinosaur movements, and other activities encourage exciting hands-on exploration. This exhibit runs through January 2017 and requires an addition fee from museum admission.
