Here Come The Dinosaurs Exhibition in Tel Aviv

“Here come the Dinosaurs” is an exhibition that will be held till the end of August on the roof of the Azrieli building in Tel-Aviv.

* For some reason, the official site doesn’t show any images from the show. Moreover, the displayed video was made in some other country. Therefore, it’s hard to understand in advance what’s there.

There is a train station next to Azrieli building, and since kids usually love trains, we decided to combine the exhibition with the ride (not applicable for Saturdays).

Inside Azrieli mall, you can see Here come the Dinosaurs ad:

We start walking through the exhibition. Almost all models are moving and roaring. I have also made a short video that you can find below.

I was pretty impressed by the models. Besides the apparent moving parts, like the head, legs, smaller parts also moved. For example, they opened and closed their eyes, and the stomach circumference changed (to imitate breathing).

There is also a 3D movie. But, I would say it is poorly organized. The waiting line is long, and when you enter, you understand why. It is a small room with only 16 chairs. Since they have more glasses than chairs, they let in more people, and the last line is the standing one.

Here I was shooting through the 3D glasses:

After seeing the movie, we continued outside. Children have different activities, like drawing and excavating dinosaur bones from the sand.

At that point, we heard there was a show for children. To reach the amphitheater on the top of Azrieli (the place where the show was held), you need to pass through the mall:

The show was quite lovely. It lasted for about 30-40 min, and they had many different activities for children.

Like feeding dinosaur babies with a bottle of milk:

And they had big dinosaur puppets (with actors inside):

And what does T-Rex eats? You got it, a hamburger 😉

And the grand finale:

One of the problems of these puppets is that actors don’t see what they are doing. Thus, they walked slowly and tried not to move too much. Nonetheless, one of the dinosaur actors fell during the show, and several people helped him get up. Putting a small camera on the outside seems trivial in this modern age, but that is not the case.

Since after the end of the show, we didn’t have enough. We made another round.

Overall, Here come the Dinosaurs exhibition is quite lovely. But, in my opinion, you don’t get value for money. If not taking into account the show, you can finish watching everything in 30-60 min. And individual ticket costs 89 NIS. I have bought tickets on sale (some credit cards give you 1+1). And I was not prepared to pay the full price since it was not clear what this show had to offer (see the asterisk at the beginning of the post). Thus, if you get the tickets for 45 NIS or less and watch the show, then go for it.

That’s all for today, and I’ll see you in future travels!

Stay Tuned!
