By popular demand, the Clinton Presidential Center is welcoming back its most popular temporary exhibit, Dinosaurs Around the World. Produced by Imagine Exhibitions, and designed for all ages, Dinosaurs Around the World is a family-friendly exhibit that will take visitors back millions of years on a dinosaur adventure and a tour of an Earth unlike today’s.
While walking among 13 larger-than-life animatronic dinosaurs, visitors to the Clinton Center will be able to grab their prehistoric passport to Pangea and discover how plate tectonics, land bridges, and volcanic activity allowed dinosaurs to disperse to all corners of the globe. The dinosaurs will be accompanied by fossils, authentic casts, and the latest research that bring the Age of Reptiles to life.
“The Clinton Center hosted the world-premiere of the Dinosaurs Around the World exhibit in 2015 and it was so popular that we have invited them back,” said Stephanie S. Streett, executive director of the Clinton Foundation. “If you’ve ever wanted to know what it would be like to roam the Earth alongside history’s largest creatures, you have another chance!”
The exhibit also features an area that chronicles the accomplishments of four U.S. Presidents – Bill Clinton, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Harry S. Truman – who worked to preserve the fossil-rich areas in North America where dinosaurs once roamed.
“Dinosaurs Around the World will transport visitors back in time to the unrecognizable landscape of Pangea in a playful and educational way,” said Tom Zaller, President and CEO of Imagine Exhibitions.
The exhibition will feature the mighty T.rex of North America, the swift Velociraptor of the Gobi Desert, and the massive herbivore Amargasaurus from the tropical jungles of South America, among others. Dinosaurs Around the World will also highlight information about the geology, geography, and climatology during the Mesozoic era. Visitors will discover how dinosaurs lived on each continent, how they interacted with each other, how geography impacted their behavior and diets, and what the continents looked like at the time.
Dinosaurs Around the World will be open through August 9, 2020. School groups with reservations always tour the Clinton Center at no cost. Reservations should be made two weeks in advance either online at www.clintonpresidentialcenter.org/education or by calling 501-748-0419.
