People simply can not get enough of dinosaurs.
With this knowledge Union Station once again wins the fascination of its next special exhibition "Dinosaurs Revealed: Journey Across America". Officials announced this week that the new summer show will open on July 3 at the Bank of America Gallery.
But this presentation will be different from the big walking shows the station usually hosts, as it is self-produced and largely based on local expertise. In-house production means that the station does not have to share the ticket revenue with a production company, but it has to pay the cost of assembling the show.
"The University of Kansas Paleontology Institute and the Missouri-Kansas City School of Earth Sciences and Paleontology have world-class collections, knowledge and content that give" Dinosaurs Revealed "a real local flavor "Jeff Rosenblatt, director of exhibitions in Science City, said in an announcement.
And then there's the Animatronics ̵
"Kansas City has never seen anything like this exhibition," said George Guastello, CEO of Union Station, in a statement.
In fact, a touring exhibition titled "Dinosaurs Unearthed" with animatronic beasts in 2010 was so popular that it was extended after the holidays and helped Union Station turn a deficit into a surplus this year.
Elsewhere in the area there were also animatronic dinosaurs.  The upcoming exhibition at Union Station will take visitors through a "Hall of Skulls" and a journey through the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods in North America.
"Dinosaurs Revealed" runs until 6th January. It follows the Lego exhibition "The Art of the Brick", which ends on May 28th.
The general admission fee for the Dinosaur Show is $ 15 on weekdays and $ 17.95 on weekends. To order tickets or get more information, go to unionstation.org.
