D&D features seven large touchscreens that allow visitors to explore different topics from the origin of birds to Mary Anning’s life, from the basics of evolution to the wildlife of the Galapagos Islands.


The exhibit can flex from 5,000 to 10,000 square feet (minimum ceiling height of 12 ft) and includes the following major components:



Hundreds of visitors have completed comment cards on the exhibit and the overall average score is 4.4 out of 5, or 88%. Visitors love it.


Take a rare and exciting look at the life of dinosaurs through their eggs, nests and embryos in Hatching the Past: Dinosaur Eggs and Babies. This remarkable hands- on exhibition offers an astounding array of dinosaur eggs and nests collected from all over the globe – including those of each of the major plant and meat-eating dinosaur groups.

Although dinosaur eggs were first identified in the 1920’s, their scientific significance was not fully appreciated until the end of the 20th century. Today, dinosaur eggs are recognized for their enormous scientific value and for offering fascinating details and fresh insights into the behavior, growth and evolution of dinosaurs.

Hatching the Past presents new discoveries about dinosaur reproduction and behavior and introduces some of the fascinating people and science behind these discoveries. This multi-media experience helps give credence to long debated theories that dinosaurs and birds are closely related.

A captivating experience for all ages, Hatching the Past invites visitors to touch real dinosaur bones and reconstructed nests-one more than eight feet in diameter, dig for eggs, experience hands-on exploration stations and view animated video presentations featuring well known dinosaur experts. Each science-rich section is enhanced with exciting life-like models of embryos and hatchlings, colorful illustrations of dinosaur family life and stunning photographs of some of the world’s most renowned dinosaur hunters and their discoveries.

The amazing collection of fossils on view includes a bowling ball-sized egg of a sauropod from Argentina – laid by a long-necked plant-eating titanosaur that lived 75 million years ago; a large cluster of eggs laid by a duck-billed, plant-eating dinosaur, and the longest dinosaur eggs ever discovered – almost 18 inches long – laid by a new giant species of oviraptor, a carnivorous, ostrich-like dinosaur.

A central feature of the exhibit is “Baby Louie,” – the nearly complete skeleton of a dinosaur embryo with its bones aligned in the proper position. Charlie Magovern made this exceptional and rare discovery when he was carefully cleaning a large block of eggs from China. He nicknamed the embryo after National Geographic photographer Louie Psihoyos. Visitors can also view an animated DVD presentation about the discovery of “Baby Louie.”

‘HORNS, SPIKES, QUILLS AND FEATHERS. THE SECRET IS IN THE SKIN!

Not long ago, our knowledge of dinosaurs was based almost completely on the assumptions we made from their internal body structure. Bones and possible muscle and tendon attachments were what scientists used mostly for reconstructing their anatomy. The rest, including the colours, were left to the imagination… and needless to say the skins were lizard-like and the colours grey, green and brown prevailed.

We are breaking the mould with this Dinosaur Revolution!

Thanks to a vast web of new research, that this time emphasises also skin and ornaments, we are now able to get a glimpse of the true, bizarre and complex nature of the evolution of the Dinosauria.

We have always known that the Dinosauria was subdivided in two main groups, according mostly to their pelvic structure: Saurischia and Ornithischia. But they had many things in common, including structures made of a special family of fibrous proteins called keratin that covered their skin in the form of spikes, quills, protofeathers and feathers, that served as insulation, defensive-offensive items or simply ornamentation.

One group (ornithischians) would go extinct and the other (saurischians) would fly into another age! But not before some of their forms collided spectacularly. Porcupine-like runners, massive horned faces and tank-like monsters had to live with and defend themselves against the teeth and claws of the Feathery Menace… a menace that sometimes reached gigantic proportions in the shape of Tyrannosaurus… or in the shape of outlandish, massive ornithomimids with gigantic claws like the newly re-discovered Deinocheirus, reconstructed here for the first time in full.

All of them are well represented and spectacularly mounted in this exhibition. The exhibits are backed with close-to-life-sized murals of all the protagonist species, fully fleshed and feathered and restored in living and breathing colours.

This two tier exhibition is like no other: it will follow the two separate paths of dinosaur evolution that will meet at the end in a massive and dramatic battle, that, in evolutionary terms, could only be really won by flying away.

Step back in time 290 million years when bizarre-looking animals dominated life on land and sea, and find out about the greatest extinction the world has ever seen in Permian Monsters: Life before the Dinosaurs. This unique traveling exhibition brings the past back to life with fossilized skeletons and full size life models of the animals that ruled the world millions of years before the age of dinosaurs, in a time known as the Permian.


The Permian period ended with the largest extinction Earth ever experienced, which wiped out 90% of all species on the planet. The cause of the end-Permian extinction had baffled scientists for the past 20 years but a recent discovery shed new light on the cause of this catastrophe: global warming. Find out how this familiar phenomenon, started by a huge volcanic eruption, set off a chain of events that led to the greatest extinction on Earth.

The exhibition blends art and science with a collection of new artwork which offers a glimpse back in time through the eyes of award winning paleo-artist Julius Csotonyi. View fossilised skeletons and reconstructed models of these amazing but bizarre creatures that dominated land and sea; and dig and identify fossils in the interactive dig pits throughout the exhibition.


This traveling exhibition showcases an amazing collection of fossils and models from this relatively unknown time period, from giant insects, bizarre looking sharks to strange reptiles with mammal-like characteristics. Meet the top predator of the time, the giant sabertoothed gorgonopsid Inostrancevia and find out what nearly killed them all to make way for Earth’s next rulers, the Dinosaurs.

Savage Ancient Seas is the only traveling exhibition featuring the marine fossil world of the Late Cretaceous Period. The exhibit is filled with huge carnivorous marine reptiles, gigantic flesh-eating fish big enough to swallow an adult human, flying reptiles with the wingspan of a small airplane and the biggest sea turtles to have ever lived. Unrivaled for their amazing varieties, voracious appetites, incredible teeth and gaping jaws, the creatures of the Savage Ancient Seas are unlike anything known in today’s world! Fantastic specimens are accompanied by accurate and engaging information via kiosks, touchscreens, graphic panels, mobile device content, big-screen videos and real fossils for visitors to touch. Fresh artwork provided by Brian Engh (dontmesswithdinosaurs.com) created specifically for the exhibit graphically depicts scientifically accurate still-life moments from the inland seaway in the Age of Dinosaurs. In concert, these exhibit components provide your visitor with a greater understanding and appreciation for these magnificent denizens of the distant past.

This exhibition presents the work of artist Karen Penrith. It has been created using 5 acrylic earth tone colors in Australian indigenous imagery, colours which not only represent the land but also the humanity and the vibrancy of all peoples. The artist is a member of the Dja Dja Wurrung of central Victoria and the Yorta Yorta through her father Burnum Burnum. The exhibition consists of works on paper and arts and crafts, gathered to convey the beauty in humanity, strength and resilience.

This exhibition has been created by love for Kyrrah and Zachary, the artist’s children, and the spirit of humanity.


The exhibition is being made available for the first time.

Imagine Exhibitions, Inc., and Denmark-based recycle artist, Thomas Dambo will develop an all-new touring exhibition featuring Dambo’s signature troll sculptures built from reclaimed materials. The outdoor exhibition will build upon the tales surrounding the more than 75 giant trolls (and counting!) that Dambo has already created, while also telling an original story in and of itself. The experience will fuse fairytales, whimsy, and incredible art installations to inspire visitors to explore the importance of nature, climate change and other complex issues related to our relationship with the planet, nature, and animals.Dambo is an artist and recycle activist based in Denmark who carries the title of the world’s most prominent “recycle artist.” He is best known for his colossal troll sculptures that range in height from 16 to 50 feet and ‘live’ as semi-permanent installations in parks, greenspaces, industrial parks, and in other site-specific locations around the world. Each folklore-inspired sculpture is imbued with expression and character and is built entirely from scrap materials like wooden pallets, fallen branches, and twigs sourced from the location of the installation. Driven by a mission to inspire people to explore our relationship with the planet, many of Dambo’s works have an associated folk tale written by Dambo himself that addresses a complex problem of our world in an approachable, fun way and which ties in with the overarching story of all Dambo’s trolls.
