Hordes of Jurassic reptiles will be roaming around the Miami Children’s Museum (MCM) as Dino Island returns. From June 8th, 2013 through January 5th, 2014, the dinosaurs will make their home at the Museum, 980 MacArthur Causeway on Watson Island in Miami. MCM and Kokoro, the originators and innovators of the life like museum-quality robotic dinosaurs, will once again transform the Museum’s What’s New? Gallery into a prehistoric adventureland for the entire family.
Enter MCM’s time machine and journey back 230 million years into the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods when giant dinosaurs roamed the earth. Visitors young and old will explore 2,500 square feet of custom sets that are home for lifelike, robotic creatures, including a Tyrannosaurus Rex, Apatosaurus, Triceratops mother and baby, Maiasaura family, and a suspended Pteradon. Children will see them walking, feeding, roaring, fighting, hatching and caring for their young, all acting and interacting with captivating realism. Families will stay clear of the volcano that erupts periodically with sound, lights and smoke, experience a murky swamp with bubbling water, and relax in a cave with a “fireside” reading nook area and much more.
Dino Island will entertain and educate children as they learn about scale through an interactive light display, experience the magnitude of dinosaurs’ size with a life size footprint, learn the difference between meat and plant eating dinosaurs, and discover the evolution of dinosaurs into birds, their closest living descendents. In addition to fulfilling the fascination, children and families will experience dinosaur habitats, unearth mysteries at a fun fossil dig station, and create unique pieces of art at rub stations.
Dino Island is a marvelous adventure of self-discovery for the whole family.
