"Be the Dinosaur: Life in the Cretaceous" is a groundbreaking fusion of state-of-the-art video game technology and traditional exhibits, featuring full-size dinosaur bones, a paleontology field station, a Safari jeep, and more!

Explore some of the greatest mysteries of paleontology in a completely interactive way. What was a day in the life of a dinosaur like? How might they have lived? What can fossil evidence tell us about the way extinct animals lived their lives?
