Get up close and personal to massive dinosaurs at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University.

Dinosaurs Unearthed brings a stampede of life-size, roaring, moving, animatronic dinosaurs to the museum for an incredible family-friendly experience.

Come face-to-face with more than a dozen, realistic and scientifically accurate dinosaurs including triceratops, stegosaurus, velociraptor and an adult Tyrannosaurus Rex.

In addition to moving dinos, the exhibition features real-life dinosaur skeletons, teeth, fossil casts of claws, skulls, an Oviraptor egg and much more.

Hands-on fun abounds as well. Children are invited to find dinosaur bones and fossils at a dig site and solve a mystery through a Dino detective touch-screen quiz. The exhibition will even give children the opportunity to control the movements of the animatronic dinosaurs.

Admission to Dinosaurs Unearthed is $5 for non-members and $3 for members, plus the price of general admission. Members, pay a one-time fee of $20 and receive the Dino Pass for unlimited access to the exhibition.
