ABOUT THE EXHIBIT

HAPPENING NOW @ LAKE TERRACE CONVENTION CENTER

EXPERIENCE DINOSAURS LIKE NEVER BEFORE!
Hattiesburg Convention Commission presents Dinosaurs Around the World, an Imagine Exhibitions production, which takes you back in time on a dinosaur adventure and a tour of an Earth very different from today – a time before the continents as we know them existed, when lush landscapes covered Africa and greenery was the norm in Antarctica! With advanced animatronics, a multi-layered narrative, fossils, authentic casts, cutting-edge research and immersive design, you’ll experience the Age of Reptiles as it comes to life!
Epic Education
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 to the visitor about the reign of the dinosaurs and helps them 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. Our expansive educator guide makes Dinosaurs Around the World the perfect educational experience for teachers and students alike.
Fun for the Whole Family
Dinosaurs Around the World is a can’t-miss event that appeals to children and adults alike. “This exhibition has traveled the world from Europe to the Middle East, and of course, here in the United States. Hattiesburg has a special opportunity to see and learn from an international scale exhibition,” explains Rick Taylor, Executive Director of the Hattiesburg Convention Commission. “This exhibition will appeal to all. Dinosaurs are a unique part of the Earth’s history that children and adults find equally fascinating. The design of the exhibit lends itself to families, individuals, and it also makes for a very unique date.”
