Dinosaurs have always been cool, but they’ve never been this cool. Cincinnati Museum Center’s newest exhibition and OMNIMAX film reveal the prehistoric history of Antarctica and its dinosaur inhabitants in exciting detail. The unique offering from CMC delivers a content-rich immersive exhibition and a perfectly matched OMNIMAX film that transport you to Antarctica in the age of dinosaurs.
Dinosaurs of Antarctica takes you back in time to a land we wouldn’t recognize today. A land where massive beasts thundered across the land; where colossal amphibians lurked about thick swamps; where sleek predators prowled the shallow tropical seas; where lush ferns and verdant woodland covered the land. This is prehistoric Antarctica 200 million years ago – a warm, green landscape teeming with activity as it sat much farther north as part of the supercontinent Gondwana (along with parts or all of South America, Africa, Australia, the Indian subcontinent and Arabia).
The accompanying exhibit showcases real fossils as well as lifelike sculptures of dinosaurs in an immersive environment that shows the world they lived in.
Dinosaurs of Antarctica: The Exhibit is included with museum admission. The exhibition and companion OMNIMAX film will run through January 15, 2023. The OMNIMAX film is not included with admission but can be added at a discount with museum admission.
