The 3-D Movie Dinosaurs: Giants of Patagonia:
If it weren't for a series of cataclysmic events, a comet impact being first on the list, our planet could well still be the domain of dinosaurs. Following Pr Rodolfo Coria, a world-reknown Argentinian paleontologist, we visit sites of major discoveries he has contributed to in Patagonia and travel back in time to see these amazing beasts come to life in 3D. Patagonia has given us the largest living animal to ever walk the Earth: the titanesque plant-eating Argentinosaur, and its nemesis, the Giganotosaur, a bipedal carnivore that could easily challenge the famous T-Rex.
Tickets for museum admission and the exhibit are $22.95 - 24.95 and may be purchased online at http://www.discoverycube.org/tickets/.
3-D movie tickets may be purchased at the venue for $3/4.00.
