Since the discovery of dinosaur fossils in the 19th century, palaeontologists have revealed an increasingly complex and accurate picture of these iconic animals from the deep past of our planet. It is only in the last few year, however, that some of the biggest discoveries have been made, revealing lost worlds filled with remarkable 'dragons' from deep time. To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Establishment of The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, the Hong Kong Science Museum will present a unique landmark dinosaur exhibition, showcasing eight of the most iconic creatures from the 'Golden Age of Dinosaurs' together for the first time: Tyrannosaurus, Triceratops, Spinosaurus, Allosaurus, Hesperosaurus, Diplodocus, Hatzegopteryx and a baby sauropod.
The exhibition boasts an unrivalled amount of original fossil material, some of the most complete fossil skeletons in the world, world-class artwork, cutting-edge 3D renderings and the first scientifically accurate reconstructions of the world's largest predatory dinosaur and the world's largest flying creature. The team behind the exhibits took a unique approach to this project, blending the world of scientific research, storytelling and unique scenography to create an exhibition that will reveal entirely novel scientific insights and provide immersive experiences along with some dynamic skeletal mounts. The exhibition will also inspire visitors to contemplate our own place in the grand story of evolution and the challenges threatening our future on this planet: global warming, extreme weather events and biodiversity loss. The exhibition is exclusively sponsored by The Hong Kong Jockey Club; and it is one of the five exhibitions under The Hong Kong Jockey Club Series supported by the Club this year.
