Natural History Museum’s dinosaurs come to Istanbul

Istanbul is hosting an exhibition from one of the United Kingdom’s famous attractions, the Natural History Museum. The exhibition “The Age of Dinosaurs” has opened in Turkey for the first time at the Torium Shopping Mall in collaboration with the Istanbul Children’s Theater.

The “Age of the Dinosaurs” is an interactive exhibition designed to take visitors on a journey through millions of years of life on Earth with the gargantuan and now extinct reptiles. It shows visitors what life on Earth was like more than 65 million years ago in swamp-like Jurassic lagoons and Cretaceous forests.

Plants and animals that are now extinct and life-size animatronic dinosaurs navigating the mysterious places where insects, mammals and lizards once lived are some of the exhibits that visitors will encounter.

The exhibition at the Torium Shopping Mall in Haramidere is presented in an area of 600 square meters.
