Personally, we probably wouldn’t want to encounter a dinosaur in real life. We’ve seen too many movies where it didn’t end up so well for the humans involved! Fortunately, you can safely see these incredible creatures at Dinosaurs Around the World in Hattiesburg, MS. So, ditch the time machine and get your tickets for this event today!

What is Dinosaurs Around the World?

Dinosaurs Around the World in Hattiesburg shows off animatronic creatures from way back when! This exhibit is giving its visitors a glimpse at what world the dinosaurs saw, complete with real fossils. You can even learn how the Earth’s continents changed thanks to the climate and plate tectonics, taking us from Pangea to our modern world. They also have a gift shop, so you can find the perfect present for the dino fans in your life.
