Ultimate Dinosaurs: Giants from Gondwana

Date(s): Jun. 23, 2012 - Mar 17, 2013

Location: Royal Ontario Museum

Come face-to-face with the world's largest and strangest dinosaurs as you journey back in time to the Mesozoic era. Learn how continental drift supported the evolution of these bizarre creatures in what is modern-day Africa, Madagascar and South America. Meet a new breed of beast in the ROM's landmark exhibition Ultimate Dinosaurs: Giants from Gondwana for its world premiere (yup, you'll see it first)

 It's the largest exhibition of southern dinosaurs ever mounted in North America and includes the largest dinosaur ever mounted in Canada – Futalognkosaurus. It’s so big it didn’t fit in the exhibit – it’s on display in the lobby!

 The exhibit goes beyond your typical museum exhibit, Ultimate Dinosaurs features multi-media experiences including reactive walls that use body-scanning technology and Augmented Reality to bring dinosaurs to life. Three AR stations in the exhibition allow you to experience dinosaurs in surprising ways, including virtually fleshing out a dinosaur skeleton. If you have an iPhone or iPad you can download the ROM Ultimate Dinosaurs app or use the iPads provided in the exhibition.
