The most anticipated exhibition of the fall at The Franklin Institute is perhaps the Jurassic World exhibit. On November 25, the museum debuts the North American premiere of Jurassic World: The Exhibition, a major traveling exhibition that features dozens of life-like animatronic dinosaurs that were created with oversight of renowned paleontologists.

Beyond dinosaurs, guests can look forward to models of different scenes from the Jurassic World film like the Hammond Creation Lab, which will be full of dinosaur fossils for exhibition guest’s discovery, incubators filled with dino eggs and more. While the Jurassic World film itself may be fictional, the exhibition uses real-world science surrounding dinosaur DNA, fossils and paleontological knowledge to create the most life-like dinosaurs that modern-day citizens will ever come in contact with. Tickets are now on sale for this groundbreaking exhibition. Purchase your ticket soon!
