Dinosaur Obsessions - Titans of The Past!

Be it adults or children, most of us have a fare share of curiosity towards dinosaurs. Why? This is because dinosaurs are extinct and we have not seen one alive. The dinosaurs left their bones and fossils to allow us to expand our imaginations wide. The human brain is no doubt ever curious about the mysteries of the world. We want to find answers! We love imaginations! So, how would scientist come to know how dinosaurs look like if they had not seen one themselves? This is nevertheless the ART of paleontology. Why ART? This is because paleontology is a combination of imaginative art and factual science which uncovers the secrets and mysteries of our world. 

Have you seen a growing triceratops or have you observed the changes on their horns? Do they grow longer or shorter? Do they grow outwards or inwards? Are the horns used for defensive purposes or as an identification? We learn all these much in the Titans Of The Past exhibition.

Are dinosaur skulls too boring for you? No worries! There are exhibitions with replica of fossils and animatronics( animated electronic moving dinosaurs ) to help you and your child in creating interesting story lines.
