New dinosaur exhibit opening at Academy of Natural Sciences

For a trip into the prehistoric, you'll soon be able to just head to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.

A new exhibit, called Dinosaurs Unearthed, is about to open at the Academy of Natural Sciences.

The exhibit opens Saturday (a members-only preview takes place Friday) and runs through January.

It will feature life-size animatronic dinosaurs, skeletons, fossil casts, tooth specimens and even fossilized dinosaur poop (technically called coprolite). Interactive components of the exhibit include controlling the robotic dinosaurs' movements, seeing how you measure up to various dinosaurs, touch-screen quizzes and other activities.
