Grab your prehistoric passport to Pangea and see animatronic dinosaurs such as the mighty T. rex of North America, the swift Velociraptor of the Gobi Desert, the massive herbivore Amargasaurus from the tropical jungles of South America, and ten others!

In addition to advanced animatronics, Dinosaurs Around the World also features information about the geologic time scale, geology, geography, and climatology. The exhibition poses questions about the reign of the dinosaurs and helps you to discover how dinosaurs lived on each continent, how they interacted with each other, how geography impacted their behavior and diets, and what the continents were really like at the time. 

Dinosaurs Around the World will transport you back in time to the unrecognizable landscape of Pangea in a playful and educational way.

The exhibit is included with museum admission and is free for Members.

Dr. Gregory M. Erickson, a world-renowned dinosaur paleontologist, is the Senior Scientific Advisor for the exhibit. Dinosaurs Around the World is produced by Imagine Exhibitions. The exhibit is sponsored locally by the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks, the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science Foundation, Nissan, The Chisholm Foundation, Entergy, The H.F. McCarty, Jr. Family Foundation, Regions, the W.A. Taylor Foundation, and other generous sponsors.
