‘Jurassic World’ Museum Exhibition Debuts In U.S.
The Movie God   |  @   |  

Jurassic World: The Exhibition

When I was a kid, I remember going to the Museum of Science in Boston for a new dinosaur exhibition right around the time Jurassic Park was released. It was amazing. Even got myself a Jurassic Jawbreaker, which is really just one of those giant Jawbreakers. Lasted me months.

Last year the fourth movie in the Jurassic Park franchise, Jurassic World, stormed into theaters and did huge numbers. A museum exhibition was created around the movie, and has already had a run in Australia. Now the exhibition has made its way here to the States, debuting at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia.

You can read the full press release with all the details below. If you’re like me and can’t make it to Philly, you can also find a great peek at what some of the exhibits look like from its run in Australia. Let’s just say, they can do way cooler stuff with animatronics now than they could back in the ’90s.

Hardcover
By Neil deGrasse Tyson, Jeffrey Simons, Charles Liu
Publisher: National Geographic Books
Released date: September 13, 2016

Scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson segued his radio show last year into a TV series on the National Geographic Channel called StarTalk, where each week he’d talk with celebrities about scientific topics, and now, there’s a new companion book called StarTalk with Neil deGrasse Tyson.

Boldly subtitled Everything You Ever Need to Know About Space Travel, Sci-Fi, the Human Race, the Universe, and Beyond, this 304-page full-cover hardcover hits on four major themes — Space, Planet Earth, Being Human, and Futures Imagined. But lest you think this is a dry science textbook, StarTalk with Neil deGrasse Tyson seeks to make astronomy, cosmology, technology, and futurology fun and accessible to the layman, and it succeeds.
