Starting in November, the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia will be the host of a new dinosaur-themed exhibit dubbed “Jurassic World: The Exhibition!”

According to, the Jurassic World exhibit will be featured at the Franklin Institute from Nov. 25 through April 17, and will be highlighted by seven animatronic dinosaurs including the Brachiosaurus, Tyrannosaurus Rex and Velociraptor.

The new exhibit was inspired by the recent “Jurassic World” film, and will feature scenery and imagery familiar to those who watched the movie. Add in the animatronic dinosaurs, and visitors will be transported to Jurassic World.

As with all exhibits at the Franklin Institute, the purpose will be educating people. To optimize the learning experience, officials brought in paleontologist Jack Horner to help educate visitors about habits, climates, diets and DNA of the dinosaurs.

Tickets for “Jurassic World: The Exhibition!” are on sale now and cost $34.95 for adults and $29.95 for children, which also includes general admission to the Franklin Institute.

“[It’s] almost an experience like no other, combining both education and theme park wonder together to really give visitors this magnificent experience,” Franklin Institute CEO Larry Dubinski said.
