REVIEW: "Dinosaurs Unearthed" comes to the Detroit Science Center

"Dinosaurs Unearthed" has taken over Detroit!

My son and I have been members of the Detroit Science Center since he was 4 years old.  I love being a member because of the "member only" events that are held when new exhibits open.  And on Thursday night, my son and I were invited to the Detroit Science Center for the members only preview of the new exhibit called "Dinosaurs Unearthed".

"Dinosaurs Unearthed" is a traveling dinosaur exhibition that allows visitors to be up close and personal with these amazing prehistoric creatures to learn how they lived and died.  The exhibit includes nearly 40 fossil replicas, 24 animatronics dinosaurs and five full skeletons.  The whole experience is truly amazing and it is something that everyone has to see for themselves.

The animatronics are remarkable.  The dinosaurs are moving, roaring and opening and closing their eyes. It reminded me of when my son and I went to see "Walking With Dinosaurs - The Area Spectacular" at Cobo Arena.  My son was everywhere taking in the whole thing and loving everything that he saw.  I was having just as much fun as he was looking at the creatures move.  We were so close that we could literally reach out and touch them.

In addition to the prehistoric animatronic experience, we also saw the IMAX movie "Dinosaurs Alive" which told the history of how the dinosaurs evolved and died.  And members were also able to see the planetarium show called "Dinosaur Planet".

The whole evening was wonderful and everyone in Detroit should go on down to the Detroit Science Center when the exhibit opens to the public on Saturday, February 19, 2011.

Ticket pricing is $19.95/adults and $17.95/ages 2-12. Tickets include the "Dinosaurs Unearthed" exhibition, Dinosaurs Alive! IMAX ® film, Dinosaur Planet planetarium show, and all of the Science Center's hands-on exhibits, and live shows and demonstrations.
