…going to Jurassic World!

Super excited that Nathan and I–along with our friend Bruce Shillinglaw (MAJOR paleontology nut!)–will be going to Jurassic World: The Exhibition at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia in April.

Jurassic World Raptor

This is the exhibition’s North American premiere, and it’s probably the closest anyone’s going to come to encountering the dinosaurs inhabiting the fictitious Jurassic World. Interested? You can learn more here. There are many levels of ticket prices depending on what you want. We went for the Cadillac VIPs because hey…Jurassic World might only come near us once! Our ticket includes a photo opportunity (hope it’s with something scary and cool!) and an exhibition catalog.

Also note that there are plenty of hotels right in the area; the one we’re staying at is within walking distance. Several hotels in the area offer packages with standard tickets included, so if that’s more your speed, be sure to check into that here.

Jurassic World leaves on April 23, so if you’re thinking about going, you should earmark time now.

There are PLENTY of videos about the exhibit on YouTube, but I’m desperately trying to avoid watching them, because I’d like to go there and be wowed and surprised. If you’d like a sneak peek, however, here’s a trailer made by the Jurassic Park Podcast. And YouTube has plenty of walk-through videos if you can’t get there.
