Aspiring and novice paleontologists from all ages and all walks of life can experience a time warp to the Mesozoic Era at the Dinoscovery by Dinosaurs Live! at Discoveria, Avenue K which had been open and on going since 21st March 2014.
Follow me as I bring you on a short tour....
It is being held in a sprawling 13,000 square foot exhibition space right here in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.
Dinoscovery by Dinosaurs Live! invites visitors to travel back in time and uncover the wonders of hands-on learning through more than 20 experiential and highly interactive educational activities while offering a sensory feast of endless fun for the whole family.
The ‘Dinoscovery by Dinosaurs Live’ is the first of its kind in Asia Pacific and it promises a fun, stimulating educational experience for both domestic and international visitors alike.
Visitors are equipped with a paleontologist map and a RFID band which will guide them to exciting discoveries. Upon completion of each activity, visitors will collect stickers which need to be stuck on to the map accordingly to enable them to
redeem a Junior or Expert Paleontologist certificate from the Dinoscovery Captain at the end of the tour.
‘Dinoscovery by Dinosaurs Live!’ is designed to provide a highly exhilarating experience whereby visitors are able to see larger-than-life dinosaurs move and hear them roar in their habitat. Apart from that, the exhibition also provides visitors the chance to watch a short dinosaur documentary in 3D cinema.

The exhibition also allows for the visitors to learn about the evolution of dinosaurs through interactive kiosks and by comparing and analyzing present-day animals such as chickens and elephants with dinosaurs as such the Theropod and Sauropod.
