The Hong Kong Jockey Club Series: Legends of the Giant Dinosaurs Exhibition
For more details, please click here
Throughout the extended history of the Earth, there comes a time when dinosaurs first appeared about 200 million years ago and become the ultimate rulers of the planet for 130 million years. Over long periods of time, the ancient landmass Pangaea split into different continents as a result of plate tectonic movements. Dinosaurs evolved into a whole family of different species in order to adapt to the changing environment, but they ultimately could not escape from extinction and all disappeared about 65 million years ago. Thanks to the efforts of paleontologists, today we can have a glimpse of how dinosaurs survived and reigned from the large number of fossils unearthed. Dinosaur fossils can be found on all continents and more than 1,000 species have been named. Today, China has become one of the countries where most dinosaur species are discovered and many of them are unique.
The Hong Kong Science Museum had organised a number of dinosaur exhibitions and all were well received. The coming "Legends of the Giant Dinosaurs" exhibition would be the largest ever presented in Hong Kong. This exhibition is solely sponsored by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust. In this exhibition, new technologies and presentation methods will be used to introduce the largest Titanosaurus and the latest studies on dinosaurs. Occupying an area of 2,500 sq. metres, the exhibition is divided into four areas with different themes:
Don't miss the chance to see the 30-metre-long Daxiatitan binglingi, one of the largest dinosaurs in Asia, Microraptor gui, the ancestor of birds, Triceratops, Tyrannosaurus and Stegosaurus and dinosaur eggs, all in one go in the "Legends of the Giant Dinosaurs" exhibition. And you will be amazed by the newly discovered huge backbones of the Ruyangosaurus giganteus, which may probably be the largest dinosaur of the world. Before you visit, please remember to download the Apps specifically designed for this exhibition to your smartphones or tablets for more fun and information.
