This summer, 20 larger-than-life advanced animatronic dinosaurs will descend on the Clinton Presidential Center as part of the Dinosaur Explorer exhibition.

The exhibit will showcase authentic fossil casts and include interactive hands-on activities so explorers can learn the science behind dinosaur adaptations and understand the connections we share with our prehistoric predecessors.

As you and the kids move through the vignettes, you’ll discover what modern paleontologists know about the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods, and what remains uncertain.

In addition to the exhibit, the Clinton Center will show an exclusive display that highlights the connections between U.S. presidents and dinosaurs, including the Antiquities Act of 1906 and President Bill Clinton’s efforts to protect fossil-rich areas where dinosaurs once roamed. The display will feature fossils that were gifted to President Clinton as well as props from the movie “Jurassic Park.” 

The family-friendly exhibit was created by Imagine Exhibitions in collaboration with Dr. Gregory M. Erickson, who is one of only 150 full-time professional dinosaur paleontologists in the world.

Visitors can experience Dinosaur Explorer between June 8 and Oct. 1. For more information, head to the Clinton Center’s website.
