Ultimate Dinosaurs

Start your day with a roar and meet the Giganotosaurus, T. rex’s bigger, badder cousin.

Frost Science members are invited to be among the first to experience our newest special exhibition, Ultimate Dinosaurs: Meet a New Breed of Beast, during an exclusive members-only morning and preview on Saturday, October 8, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Discover new and exotic dinosaurs from the other side of the world. The exhibition combines rarely seen specimens with augmented reality technology that transforms full-scale dinosaurs into flesh covered animated beasts right before your eyes.

In addition, members will enjoy:

  • A light continental breakfast, including coffee and mimosas*, courtesy of Constellation Culinary Group. (*Must be 21 and over and show a valid photo ID to enjoy the mimosas.)
  • Hands-on programming and curated dinosaur activities with the museum’s education team.
  • A members-only show in the Frost Planetarium, curated by Dr. Doug Roberts, Vice President of Science Education. Experience the Frost Planetarium in a new way in this interactive show which explores how asteroids impacted our planet’s surface and affected the evolution of dinosaurs. (Seating is first-come, first-served.)
  • A special meet-and-greet with paleontologist Dr. Cary Woodruff, the museum’s inaugural curator of vertebrate paleontology.
  • Tours of the museum’s Marine Conservation WetLab and an inside look at active coral restoration research.
  • A personal encounter with one of our bird ambassadors and Donald “Skip” Uricchio, senior director of animal and museum exhibitions. Learn how birds are more closely related to dinosaurs than snakes.
  • A chance to strike a ‘dino-pose’ in our photobooth, special giveaways (while supplies last) and more.
  • Double discount at the Science Store (that’s 20% off!) all day long. (The museum will close at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 8.)
