Visitors will see full-size dinosaur skeletons, including Tyrannosaurus Rex and Edmontosaurus, and walk through the five large-scale mass extinctions that occurred over the last 500 million years. The exhibit is interactive so visitors can read up on facts and evidence throughout the exhibit to decide for themselves if we’re headed for a sixth mass extinction.

Dinosaurs featured in the latest Jurassic World movie, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, like the Edmontosaurus and Stan the Tyrannosaurus Rex, are on display in the exhibit. Guests will also learn about what led to the demise of trilobites, sea scorpions, proto-mammals, ancient coral reef dwellers, ancient sea life, armor plated fish, mastodons, and other extinct animals that once roamed Michigan.
