Embark on a globetrotting expedition around the world to discover the Age of Reptiles! See 11 animatronic dinosaurs, and more!

In this specially constructed indoor and outdoor version of the popular Dinosaurs Around the World exhibition, you will be whisked back in time on a dinosaur adventure to before the continents as we know them existed.

With advanced animatronics, a multi-layered narrative, cutting-edge research, in an outdoor environment surrounded by nature, you’ll experience the Age of Reptiles brought back to life!

Grab your prehistoric passport to Pangea and see animatronic dinosaurs such as the mighty T. rex of North America, the bi-pedal predator Herrerasaurus, one of the first dinosaurs to appear on Earth, the bizarre, bony-crested Oviraptor from Mongolia, and more!

After you tour the exhibit, explore the Museum's Dinosaur Trail, too!

The exhibit is included with museum admission or Mississippi Museum of Natural Science Foundation Membership.

Dr. Gregory M. Erickson, a world-renowned dinosaur paleontologist, is the Senior Scientific Advisor for the exhibit.

The exhibit is sponsored locally by the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks, the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science Foundation, Nissan, Entergy, Trustmark Bank, Regions Bank, H.F.
