Local museum to unveil dinosaur exhibit
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (WSVN) -- A South Florida museum is about to unveil a new, hands-on dinosaur exhibit.
"Dinosaurs in Motion," the latest exhibit from the Museum of Discovery and Science in Fort Lauderdale is providing visitors an experience that blends science and art.
Museum officials said visitors will have the chance to travel back in time virtually by manipulating life-size dinosaurs. "It's a way of turning science into art; they're kinetic," said Kim Cavendish, the museum's president and CEO. "The visitors can operate them, watch their movements, and see how the various fabricated pieces fit together and how they move, and in the process they also learn about dinosaurs themselves."
The exhibit officially opens this Saturday.
