Expedition Dinosaur Now Open At Mall

Expedition Dinosaur, created by the Palm Beach Museum of Natural History, is on display at the Mall at Wellington Green on the lower level near Nordstrom through Sunday, Sept. 10.

“We’re thrilled to continue creating new attractions at the mall that our visitors will enjoy,” said Marc Philippe Strich, the mall’s general manager. “Along with seeing real dinosaur skeletons, visitors can meet actual paleontologists and even touch an authentic dinosaur bone.”

Featuring real dinosaur skeletons from Nanotyrannus, a smaller cousin of Tyrannosaurus Rex, to a Triceratops excavated in the U.S., Expedition Dinosaur allows visitors to explore prehistoric life not only as it existed on land, but also learn about the rise of birds and the origins of flight, the evolution of flying reptiles and view 65-million-year-old insects preserved in fossilized amber.

Throughout the summer, the museum will host private events, lectures from renowned paleontologists, camps and more. The exhibit is open Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for children and can be purchased at the exhibit entrance.

The Palm Beach Museum of Natural History is a nonprofit corporation that has more than 10 years of experience excavating sites in South Dakota’s Hell Creek formation. The museum’s mission is to collect, research, interpret and explain all aspects of the natural world, the evolution of life and the development of human cultures.
