Why you should bring your kids to the Dinosaur Experience in Dublin

Image from pinterest.

As someone who chose to study a field that I’m in love with, I have always related learning with fun. Things worked out easily for me when approaching study that way, and while walking through the galleries of the exhibition “ Dinos Alive in Dublin”, and looking at the fun the youngsters were having I couldn’t help but think how good this type of experience is for learning.

Bringing your kids to the experience can be an activity that brings both joy and enhances their interest in a new subject. At the same time, liking both science and fun. The Cognition Today magazine article by Aditya Shukla, demonstrates how an enhanced mood that these activities provide gives an extra factor of fun that improves the quality of learning.

Although the experience is aimed at kids I did not get bored throughout the walking, and even as an adult, you will learn a lot about the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous periods, while also counting on a family-friendly environment, that will bring safe space and joy to the family as a whole.

One might consider that just enjoyed because I am, personally a big fan of the Jurassic period, but the experience counts as well with the presence of different implementations of technology aiming therefore also at those adults interested in technology, there’s a saloon that implemented the use of VR!

At first, right after walking in is the “Animated dinosaurs”, the dinosaurs were displayed at the exhibition on a large scale, and I can only imagine how captivating the universe of children is. My favorite dinosaur here was the velociraptor, and here I learned that they are much smaller than portrayed in the cinema.

The exhibition demonstrated that the velociraptors are the size of a turkey!

The experience also with the presence of the famous t-rex, and on a large scale, for me it was fine I knew he couldn’t eat me in front of everyone, jokes apart, and the kids were having fun in the first room.

The second Room is the Jurassic Journey, here As I mentioned above it counts with a VR experience and that was my favorite, I must say in that room, I felt like I was having as much fun as the young ones! Its a room that is fun also for the lovers of technology and the possibilities that virtual reality promises at the future.

The exhibition counts with a room, that provides a more interactive experience, where people can touch and play around with the replicas. That was the most noisy place for someone grumpy like me, that being said the young generation was having loads of fun. So as the families.

The event follows a similar “script” from another previous exhibition of the same brand, and you can yourself see if its something you would be interested in. See this video from Melbourne, Australia.

I remember being in a van Gogh experience in Dublin, and I think this type of activity is promising with the advance of virtual reality. The biggest difference between the experiences I had before is that those were aimed at adults, and that is a way more inclusive experience for families.

I have been to many exhibitions across the world in countries such as Brazil, and England, and I felt it lacked the immersive element. And can’t help but wonder how this sort of exhibition will develop in the coming years.

How do you find it, do you think that is something that you would be interested in experiencing, have you already been to the Dino in Dublin or any other place around the globe? Leave a comment and let me know!
