The world of dinosaurs

Arles - Géologie - From Saturday 5 to Sunday 6 March 2022 between 10 am and 6 pm.

Imagine stepping into a time machine and going back to the Mesozoic era when the Earth was full of fearsome predators and herbivores. The World of Dinosaurs exhibition gives you an interesting insight into the world of these fascinating giants of the Mesozoic era and invites you to embark on a real journey through time among 45 life-like dinosaurs from the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods.

The exhibition is surprisingly realistic, as 29 of the specimens are animated and react with movements and sounds to the visitors' passage, making it more interactive and offering a fun moment for the whole family.
