Dinosaurs:  A bite out of time

South Carolina State Museum:  Opening July 1, 2014

Journey back in time when monsters walked the earth, swam in the seas and soared through the skies in Dinosaurs: A Bite Out of Time. After being extinct for more than 65 million years, these life-like dinosaurs are here and are hungry. The exhibit features several robotic dinosaurs and strange creatures from prehistoric times, including the ferocious Tyrannosaurus rex, the massive Stegosaurus and the long-necked Apatosaurus. Guests will also encounter creatures that lived during the age of dinosaurs, but were not dinosaurs, including a Mosasaurus, one the fiercest reptiles ever to hunt the seas of its day.


The exhibit includes a number of hands-on features:

  • A controllable duck bill dinosaur
  • A fossil rub station
  • A dinosaur dig box
  • Two dinosaur puppet show booths for kids to enjoy

PLUS, take home a piece of prehistoric history by getting a souvenir photo taken with a life-sized Triceratops or shop in the special Dinosaurs museum store!
