The Expo Dinosaurios arrives in Mérida on March 3


After visiting the municipalities of Tizimín and Valladolid, the Expo Dinosaurios will close its Yucatán tour in Mérida, where it will be available from Friday, March 3 and until Sunday, April 2.

Admission will be completely free, and the exhibition will be located on the esplanade of the former “Juárez” Penitentiary, next to Parque la Paz, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. night, as well as Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.

As in Tizimín and Valladolid, where it was a complete success, since thousands of adults, children and young people attended, its visitors in the capital will be able to enjoy for a month the robotic figures of more than 20 species of various sizes, as another option to visit during the upcoming holydays that will cover from Friday the 17th to Monday the 20th of March, on the occasion of the Birth of Benito Juárez, which is commemorated on March 21st.

This exhibition offers tours of decorated rooms, with cutting-edge production, lighting, audiovisual projections, and detailed settings, which make you feel like you are walking among dinosaurs; the specimens, such as the tyrannosaurus rex, triceratops, brachiosaurus and even a mammoth show a high degree of realism thanks to their aesthetics and the synchronization of sound with movement.

In addition to the animatronics, families will be amazed by a welcome tunnel, the time tunnel, screens, a museum, and a play area; specialized guides, fun, entertaining and trained experts in the field will explain each of the animals and provide curious information about them.

During a journey to the Mesozoic era, the public will appreciate species such as Ankylosaurus, Stegosaurus, Parasaurolophus, Oviraptor, Amargasaurus, Iguanodon, Xiphosurus, Spinosaurus, Pachycephalosaurus, Carnosaurs, Utahraptor and Pteranodon; aquatic fauna, among which the Liopleurodon and ichthyosaur stand out, and from the ice age, such as the Smilodon or saber-toothed fauna and the woolly rhinoceros.

With this memorable, interactive, and educational experience, Yucatecans will learn about science in the company of dinosaurs.
