    Saturday March 07, 2015 - 10:00 am — TheMuseum - Kitchener
    Come experience the world as it was millions of years ago. Dinosaurs | The Edge of Extinction uncovers a century of research about both Triceratops and Tyrannosaurus Rex – two of the most well-known dinosaurs – and how they lived until the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction. It will reveal the interdependence between the species, their environment, and the forces that shaped both their life and extinction. Through new, technology-based interactive stations you will get to see the world through the eyes of different dinosaurs, learn how a Pterosaur flies, and walk among these giants. Meet THEMUSEUM’s dinosaur family and interact with an infant Triceratops and T-Rex, and have your bravery tested when you take part in a newly developed program that allows you to come face to face with a walking, roaring dinosaur.
