Jurassic World: The Exhibition now on show at Museum Victoria, will allow everyone to ‘walk with dinosaurs’ by getting up close and personal with realistic life size animatronic models. Stomping out of the studio, off the screen and into Melbourne city, this scary as interactive, immersive and innovative show will be sure to delight both kids and adults alike. Melbourne is the only city in Australia who will host this landmark show. Tom Zaller, President & CEO of Imagine Exhibitions said ‘This exhibition is truly unlike any other, we have managed to realize the dream of walking among these prehistoric giants…you will truly be the closest you will ever come to living dinosaurs.
The exhibition is based on Universal Pictures Blockbuster film Jurassic World, the fourth instalment of the Jurassic Park series and will be on show at Museum Victoria until the 9th October 2016. It is the result of a collaboration between the Melbourne institution and Imagine Exhibitions, who negotiated a licensing agreement with the American company Universal Pictures. Jurassic World became one of the biggest blockbusters in cinema history in 2015, grossing more than $1.67 billion at the global box office on its way to becoming the third-highest-grossing film of all time. I discovered something I hadn’t known before, Dinosaurs lived in Victoria too.
Melbourne based Creature Technology Company founded in 2006, who has already produced many great ‘beasts’, have ensured their models will provide an ‘awe inspiring’ show like no other. They are today producing technologically sophisticated, creatively inspired and life-like animatronic creatures for exhibitions, arena spectaculars, theme parks, stage shows and events around the world. Suitably scary, kids will be overawed by getting up close and personal with a Tyrranosaurus Rex, a towering Brachiosaurus and by coming face to face with a Pachyrhinosaurus. They can also inspect The Hammond Creation Lab, where Jurassic Park’s dinosaurs were created.
Paleontologist Jack Horner, who has worked as an adviser to the filmmakers, will ensure the show is also an educational experience.“We are delighted Melbourne Museum will host the world premiere of Jurassic World: The Exhibition,” said Dr. Patrick Greene, CEO, Museum Victoria. “We know that dinosaurs capture the imagination of young and old alike, and this exhibition is sure to wow audiences and inspire young minds” he said.
A combination of cutting-edge technology and sound research, Jurassic World: The Exhibition is a world-class exhibition event for Melbourne, which is assured to bring in the tourism dollar. The government is hoping for ‘thousands of visitors’ to help boost the State’s economy. Remember, if something chases you RUN… Jurassic World: The Exhibition, Museum Victoria, until October 9, 2016.
