Dinos Alive!

Dinos Alive!

Apatosaurus (pronounced ah-PAT-uh-SAWR-us).

This long –necked quadrupedal dinosaur, which lived during the late Jurassic period, is one of many dinosaurs now roaming the Pusat Sains Negara, located at Bukit Kiara, Kuala Lumpur. An exhibition highlighting these amazing creatures, titled ‘Dinos Alive’ is currently on display until 31 May, 2011.

It’s extremely long neck, and long whip-like tail may measure up to 22 meters and can weigh up to roughly the weight of four elephants.

Widely known as a brontosaurus, the Apotasaurus is joined by the likes of the infamous Tyrannosaurus Rex, whose real-life skeleton is also on display and will definitely delight those who wish to view up close the ancient and extinct species. The T-Rex was one of the largest meat-eating dinosaurs that ever roamed earth.

Since watching the popular Jurassic Park film in 1993, depicting the lost world of dinosaurs, the fascination with dinosaurs has always captured the imagination.

To live and breathe on the same land as the dinosaurs, who once roamed the earth before their sudden demise, is surely surreal.

What did their life look like? How did dinosaurs really look like, back then?

Pusat Sains Negara has been turned into an interactive display and an extremely interesting educational experience for children and adults.

Visitors to the exhibition can view two main galleries depicting the various types of dinosaurs, the carnivore-typed dinosaurs as well as the herbivore-typed dinosaurs. Each dinosaur comes with a brief history of its life, habitat and eating habits.

Other dinosaurs on display include the triceratops, brachiosaurus, stegosaurus and megalosurus. They are animatronic dinosaurs providing an educational and fun learning experience to children and adults, alike. Besides this, there is also the pit for the ‘fossil dig’, where children can try their skills at finding buried fossils.

If you are tired from walking around the exhibits, try taking a ride on the Dino train that passes the exhibits. There is also the Dino Explorer, a vehicle simulating the world of dinosaurs.

Those wishing to visit Pusat Sains Negara, the visiting hours are from 9 am to 5 pm daily (including Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays). There is a nominal fee to enter the exhibition.

For further information, check out the site’s website: or call Pusat Sains Negara at 03-2089 3400 (office) and 03- 2089 3401 (fax).
