SAM_3849-225x300This weekend at the Knoxville Convention Center we have a great interactive, family-friendly exhibit, “Discover the Dinosaurs.” Step into our exhibit hall, and you’ll be transported 65 million years into the past when dinosaurs ruled the earth. Sixty museum-quality and animatronic dinosaur replicas have taken over the center.

Our exhibit hall has been transformed into a prehistoric playground. An interactive, hands-on exhibit allows families and children to get up-close and personal with the dinosaurs and even touch them. Guests can push buttons to control the dinosaurs’ movements and make them roar! We are so excited to have “Discover the Dinosaurs” here in Knoxville. We first heard about this exhibit from a sister SMG-managed property in Illinois. They told us how interesting, educational and fun it was for families in their area, so we jumped at the chance to bring something this unique to Knoxville.

Discover the Dinosaurs will provide a fabulous adventure for the whole family. With a variety of activities from an actual-sized replica of a T-rex head and educational displays to dinosaur inflatables and an excellent gift shop, there’s something for everyone. Kids can even ride a dinosaur! It has truly never been more fun to learn about dinosaurs.

The exhibit is open Friday from noon until 9 p.m.; Saturday 10 a.m.-8 p.m.; and Sunday, 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Tickets are available at the door: adults (12 and older) $14; children (2-11) $9; and seniors (65+) $9. Children under 2 are free.

The price of admission includes attractions such as a Dino Dig, Dino Theater, Dino Den, Dino Coloring and a scavenger hunt. For an additional charge, there are also Triceratops and T-rex rides, inflatables, gem and fossil panning, mini-golf and dino face painting.

Step back in time at the Knoxville Convention Center this weekend!
