Titans Of The Past - Dinosaurs & Ice Age Mannals

[Science Centre Singapore] Titan Of The Past
My boy is a great fans of Jurassic Park movies and he loves all the dinosaurs especially T-Rex. So during December (2013) school holiday, we decided to visit this "Titans of the Past" exhibition which is currently held at Singapore Science Centre until 23 February 2014.

Upon entering the exhibition hall, visitors will be greeted by the "The Growth and Behavior of Dinosaurs" which was developed by world famous palaeontologist, Dr Jack Honer who is also the technical advisor for the Jurassic Park movies.

Further down the walkway, there was a collection of Triceratops skulls on display from baby to their grandparents stage. Parents can also encourage their kids to read on the information panels which explained more about the growing stage of the Triceratops. Whereas for younger kids, there is also a small room behind the exhibit showing s short animation clips of the Triceratops growing stage too.

At the last exhibition room, you can sit back, relax and enjoy the film about dinosaur or the kids can take part in some fun activities such as “dig pit” to find the fossil, colouring on styrofoam with dinosaur shapes, making dinosaur miniatures or etc.

With a backdrop of twinkling stars, The Ice Age Exhibition was quite a disappointment with a few animatronic mammals from the Ice Age which includes a mammoth, a mastodon and a saber-toothed tiger among others at the last section near the exit doors.

Overall this is quite an interesting exhibition where visitors get to learn more about the growing stage and behavior of dinosaurs but to fully understand you must be able to spend time to read the information panels, enjoy the dinosaur film and etc before you find the admission tickets worth the price.

In each challenge the room will be filled with green lasers radiating and participant(s) must navigate through the web of lasers without breaking a beam. And if they do, they will be penalised with time added to their scores. My boy had a great time getting through the laser maze and it is indeed a fun experience for him with a record of 232 seconds.
