Humans and dinosaurs invade Science Centre
Those who have found themselves lost in thought, pondering existential questions such as ‘Where do I come from?’ and ‘What is it to be human?’ will likely take a special interest in the Montreal Science Centre’s newest exhibition, Humans.
Conceived and produced entirely by the museum’s team, it aims to tackle queries concerning the origin of our species. The exhibition traces the advent and evolution of humankind, allowing visitors to learn about the major transformations humans have undergone throughout the course of our time on earth. The exhibition also takes an intimate look at changes that occur within the span of a single lifetime.
Then, once you feel you’ve sufficiently become acquainted with our evolutionary journey, you can take one more giant step back into history, about 65 million years back, to be precise, to a time when dinosaurs ruled the roost.
Following the enormous success of the exhibition three years ago, Dinosaurs Unearthed 2 is returning to the museum with 14 life-size animatronic dinosaurs, more than 20 fossils, and two full-scale skeletons.
Humans will be a permanent exhibition opening Oct. 8, but Dinosaurs Unearthed 2 will be on display from Oct. 5 to March 20. It costs $15 for adult admission, $13 for teens 13 to 17, and $8.50 for kids 4 to 12. Free for kids under 4.
