Hold onto your loved ones, dinosaurs are invading the Academy of Natural Sciences this fall.

Beginning tomorrow, October 12, Dinosaurs Unearthed brings a stampede of life-size, roaring, moving, animatronic dinosaurs to the Logan Square museum. Check out scientifically accurate recreations of a Tyrannosaurus Rex, Velociraptor, Stegosaurus and more.

Also look forward to real-life dinosaur skeletons, teeth, fossil casts of claws, skulls, an Oviraptor egg and much more.

Hands-on fun abounds as well. Children are invited to find dinosaur bones and fossils at a dig site and solve a mystery through a Dino detective touch-screen quiz. The exhibition will even give children the opportunity to control the movements of the animatronic dinosaurs.

Admission to Dinosaurs Unearthed is $5 for non-members and $3 for members, plus the price of general admission. Members, pay a one-time fee of $20 and receive the Dino Pass for unlimited access to the exhibition.
