  • Based on one of the biggest blockbusters in cinematic history, Jurassic World: The Exhibition is set to open its gates at the acclaimed Field Museum in Chicago, home to one of the best dinosaur collections in the world, on May 26, 2017. The Exhibition immerses audiences of all ages in settings inspired by the groundbreaking film franchise Jurassic World, blending real-world science and education with the very best in high-quality entertainment. This summer, not only will visitors be able to see real dinosaur fossils at The Field Museum, they will be able to imagine what it would have been like to walk among these breathtaking animals.

    Produced in conjunction with Universal Brand Development and Imagine Exhibitions, and co-produced by MagicSpace and IES, the lifelike animatronic dinosaurs were designed by The Creature Technology Company (Walking with Dinosaurs). The larger-than-life Exhibition made its world premiere in Melbourne, and marked its U.S. debut at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, shattering attendance records at both venues.

    Featuring the closest simulation of dinosaurs ever created, The Exhibition was developed in close collaboration with renowned paleontologist Jack Horner, who served as Paleontological Advisor on Jurassic World. The Exhibition is infused with interactive educational elements—inspired by the real-world science of dinosaur DNA that allowed Jurassic World to come to life. Visitors will travel to Isla Nublar as VIP guests to explore a towering Brachiosaurus, come face-to-face with a Velociraptor, and get a rare up-close look at the most vicious dinosaur of them all, Tyrannosaurus rex. To accommodate the massive size of the dinosaurs, The Field Museum is erecting a 16,000-square-foot exhibition tent on the front lawn of the museum—a first-of-its-kind structure for the museum.

    Guests will walk through the world-famous Jurassic World gates to get up close to the towering dinosaurs, some more than 24 feet tall, and explore the Park through a specially guided tour. Once onsite, visitors will experience the family-friendly Gentle Giants Petting Zoo; step behind the glass into The Hammond Creation Lab; get a special preview of Jurassic World’s top-secret project, the Indominus rex; and go inside the Raptor Training Paddock.
