You’re invited to join us for the opening of Dino Island on Saturday, June 8th!

Dinosaurs are invading MCM again!
Saturday, June 8th 2013 – Sunday, January 5th 2014
Miami Children’s Museum (MCM) and Kokoro, the originators and innovators of museum-quality robotic dinosaurs, have collaborated to transform the What’s New? Gallery into a prehistoric adventure for the entire family!
Join us as we journey back in time 200 million years ago to the Mesozoic Era when dinosaurs roamed the earth. Visitors will explore a 2,500 square foot Jurassic environment that is home to eleven lifelike robotic creatures, including a Tyrannosaurus Rex, Apatosaurus, Triceratops mother and baby, Maiasaura family.
Through unforgettable interactions with these lifelike creatures, children will learn about fossils, different prehistoric time periods, theories of extinction, how dinosaurs communicated, the science behind how they were named, and more! Bring your camera for a dinosaur sized photo opportunity with a suspended Pteranodon and full scale Tyrannosaurus and Triceratops heads!
