Expedition: Dinosaur Opens at RMSC Today, November 5

    ROCHESTER, NY, November 5, 2021 – The Rochester Museum & Science Center (RMSC) is gearing up for a roaring great time with its newest featured exhibition, Expedition: Dinosaur. The immersive exhibition, which explores the wonders of the world in the time of the dinosaurs, opens today, Friday, November 5.

    The exhibition, produced by Stage 9 Exhibits, allows visitors to travel through time and walk among the giants of the Mesozoic Era. It brings dinosaurs to life through captivating, life-sized robotic replica dinosaurs that will leave guests in awe as they journey through galleries filled with thrilling sound installations and exciting special effects.

    “RMSC is thrilled to be featuring Expedition: Dinosaur because dinosaurs have the unique power to engage everyone from age 2 to 102. Everyone can find something that interests them,” said Hillary Olson, President and CEO of the RMSC. “You can discover what and how these fascinating creatures ate, explore where and how they lived, learn how their legacy lives on in today’s birds, and more. We are thrilled to welcome visitors into this immersive exhibition and see what sparks their curiosity.”

    Expedition: Dinosaur is open to the public in the Riedman Gallery and adjacent gallery spaces on the third floor of the RMSC Museum through Spring 2021. The new exhibition features a number of hands-on interactives, including puzzles that challenge guests to identify dinosaur species and reassemble Pangea from our contemporary continents. Visitors can also become paleontologists using excavation tools and robotics to find and understand fossils. 

    “You can only glean so much from a picture in a textbook. Seeing these life-size animatronics paired with immersive spaces and the wealth of information in the exhibition helps make paleontology and Earth’s history come to life,” said Calvin Uzelmeier, Director of Featured Content at RMSC. “When visitors complete their dinosaur adventure, they’ll leave with a lasting connection to these beautiful creatures that once dominated the earth, along with fascinating facts about the prehistoric landscape.”
