Visitors to the Museum of Arts and Sciences journeyed back through time in the Life Through Time: Dinosaurs & Ice Age Mammals exhibition, which depicted how a few famous animals lived in their environments. They experienced the sights, sounds, and action of robotic animals from Kokoro Exhibits, the creative team that recreated the time of dinosaurs and took us into the microscopic world of insects in recent years.
The exhibition started in the Ice Age and chilled visitors with a Saber Tooth Tiger family and a Mastodon. Then they traveled even farther back to the time of dinosaurs to run from a Tyrannosaurus Rex and gazed up on a giant Apatosaurus. This group consisted of 10 exhibits in all and included a robotic skeleton visitors could control, crayon rubbing tables, and a dinosaur dig.
In conjunction with the exhibition, the Mark Smith Planetarium presented Dinosaur Prophecy (click here to preview), about how dinosaurs interacted with their environments, what may have brought about their extinction, sites where discoveries have been made, and much more.
