Due to the overwhelming popularity of the current exhibition, Dinosaurs: T-Rex Face-to-Face, the Reading Public Museum will be open 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Mondays throughout the month of August and on Labor Day, September 3, in addition to its regular schedule. The exhibit is so popular that the museum has already surpassed last year's total attendance.
You'll see huge, life-like, cutting-edge animatronic versions of dinosaurs — each outfitted with cameras, sensors and artificial intelligence — react to your every mood. Travel back in time 67 million years to explore the world of the cretaceous period when the infamous T.rex roamed the earth. It is sure to be a heart-pounding encounter and amaze anyone who comes near.
The show is not scripted — no two visitors will have the same experience. The colossal dinosaurs track guests in real-time, responding based on the actions of each individual, and even interact among themselves. Experience firsthand what it's like to be stalked by prehistoric creatures as they react to your every move!
This exhibition also features a "Dinosaur Dig" for children, a special display of fossils and other specimens from its own collection, as well as a historical timeline.
