Memphis, TN - This winter and spring at the Museum of Science & History – Pink Palace, it’s all about dinosaurs, big, small, flying, walking and swimming, plus fossils, paleontology, and a lot more. The Museum’s new Dinosaurs in Motion exhibit, opening January 30, gets the dinosaur season started.

Dinosaurs in Motion is an interactive STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Mathematics) experience built for visitors of all ages. The STEAM-minded exhibit engages and educates visitors with 14 magnificent, fully interactive, recycled metal dinosaur sculptures. The sculptures feature exposed mechanics inspired by actual fossils. An amazing blend of art, science and innovation, the exhibit weaves in sketching, sculpting, kinetics, biomechanics, observing, and experimenting. Every piece is interactive for visitors to touch and learn. (exhibit will be cleaned according to COVID protocol)

“The exhibit goes beyond merely the history of dinosaurs. It shows the biomechanics of these amazing creatures in an intriguing and artistic way that allows the visitor to have a hands-on, interactive STEAM experience,” said Bill Walsh, Museum marketing manager.

The moving, human element to the exhibit lies in the story of the artist, John Payne, who truly is the heart of Dinosaurs in Motion. Through video and interactives, visitors will walk away with Payne's inspiring message:

"If you can dream it, you can do it."


The exhibition is one that inspires guests to learn, discover and create.
