The Manitoba Museum’s “Dinosaurs Unearthed” exhibit, which opened on October 6, has been widely received as a success.

Nearly 4,000 people have attended the exhibition since its opening. The exhibit is a dynamic, experiential dinosaur exhibition that allows guests to participate in the larger-than-life world of dinosaurs. Set in a naturalistic setting, the exhibition features 14 animatronics, two full-size skeletons and 22 fossils.

“Dinosaurs Unearthed is thrilled to be at the Manitoba Museum during this exciting time in the Museum’s development,” said Nancy Brenner, managing director of Dinosaurs Unearthed. “The support for the exhibition has been fantastic and we know the community will benefit from the creative and unique programming offered by the Manitoba Museum.”

The exhibit is located on the ground floor of the museum and features new Digistar technology. Admission is $14 for adults, $12 for youth/students/seniors, and $50 for families.
