Ultimate Dinosaurs

Field Trips & Educators

Not your typical dinosaur exhibition, Ultimate Dinosaurs introduces your students to new and unique dinosaurs that evolved in isolation in South America, Africa and Madagascar and are unfamiliar to most North Americans. The exhibition combines rarely seen specimens with augmented reality technology that transforms full-scale dinosaurs into flesh covered animated beasts right before your eyes.

Dinosaurs Alive! Omnitheater film

Journey with some of the world's preeminent paleontologists as they uncover evidence that the descendants of dinosaurs still walk (or fly) among us. From the exotic, trackless expanses and sand dunes of Mongolia's Gobi Desert to the dramatic sandstone buttes of New Mexico, the film follows paleontologists from the American Museum of Natural History as they explore some of the greatest dinosaur finds in history. Through the magic of scientifically accurate computer-generated animation, these newly discovered creatures, as well as some familiar favorites, will come alive... in a big way!
