Inside the Titans of the Past exhibition
I had previously reported on Science Centre's brand new year end exhibition - Titans of the Past.
However, if the simple idea of watching Dinosaurs and mammals from the Ice Age "brought back to life" through animatronics, real fossils, and more not enough for you, then its time for some pictures!
Titans of the Past features 2 international travelling dinosaur exhibitions, "The Growth and Behavior of Dinosaurs", which has been co-produced by the Museum of the Rockies (MOR), USA Montana and Kokoro Co., Ltd. Japan, and "Ice Age, The Exhibition" from Aurea Exhibitions, Argentina.
So if you think that by being to one dinosaur themed exhibition, you have been to them all, then its time to give yourself a great surprise by going to Titans of the Past.
The exhibition is filled with many WOW moments.
You will get to see real fossils, though the star of the show is the largest Tyrannosaurs Rex (T-Rex) skull ever found!
After which you should check out the two life-sized dinosaur skeleton casts.
You will also get to see state-of-the-art animatronics, bringing you as close to "living" Dinosaurs as possible - that until we successfully bring a Dinosaur back to life!
The Ice Age mammals' exhibits from Aurea Exhibitions will also be showcased for the first time in Asia.
It features 10 animatronics animals from the Ice Age in different habitats as well as the cast of Argentinosaurs, the largest Sauropod ever found, and the cast of Giganotosaurs, one of the largest terrestrial carnivores in the last Cretaceous period.
If this doesn't make you feel that you are in Jurrasic Park, then the scientific aspect of the exhibition will!
The exhibition showcases the latest sensational hypothesis of world-renowned paleontologist Dr Jack Horner and his research team through quality specimens of Triceratops, Pachycephalosaurus, Hypacrosaurus and T-Rex and the tracking of the development and growth of these four dinosaur species.
Fun Fact: Dr Jack Horner was the technical advisor for the Jurassic Park movies and partial inspiration for the main antagonist.
“The exhibition tells the story of a dinosaur’s life using real fossils and specimens that have played a pivotal role to facilitate our continuous efforts to demystify the prehistoric age and uncover new findings. ” said Dr Jack Horner.
A/Prof Lim Tit Meng, Chief Executive, Science Centre Singapore, further commented on the exhibition, saying,
"The fascination surrounding the existence of dinosaurs continues to grow as many questions remain unanswered. We are confident that Titans of the Past – Dinosaurs and Ice Age Mammals exhibition will amplify the curiosity and excitement among the visitors.”
