The Dinosaurs Area
When you enter the exhibition you will find yourself in the dinosaurs area – the dinosaurs age. About 43 full size models (some huge) were installed in an open area in the museum garden. Some of the modes are interactive – they move and growl. The little ones get really excited from it! Each dinosaur has a sign (in Hebrew) explaining its origin, zoological family, etc. You can also rent an audio guide for 15 nis (exists in Hebrew, English, and soon in Russian) that provides a lot of interesting information. Did you know that the teeth of some dinosaurs are as big as a kitchen knife?! I never thought about this. When it gets dark there is light projected on the exhibits, which is really nice to see.

Here’s a short video of a dinosaur moves and growls.

An Interactive Area
From the dinosaur’s area, you get to the interactive area, which is a rest, refresh and play area. There are areas for resting, painting, a small amusement park and photo areas (the area where the red sign is – on the bottom right of the photograph below is a fossil searching area).

Ice Age Area
After some rest, you can continue to the Ice Age area. The big mammoth impressed up especially. The children were sorry it was extinct. Parts of the animals shown in this area exist today, such as polar bear, panda bear, bison, etc. If you can’t make it to the Safari in Africa, the big parks in the USA or China, it is an opportunity to see what these animals look like, in full size.

3D Movie
The last stop at the Dinosaurs exhibition is a 3D movie in an air-conditioned hall. An animated science fiction movie of the big gang is played here with many effects. The movie is in Hebrew.

The Dinosaurs and Ice Age Exhibition in well-suited for small children and it is best to go there in the evening, when it is not too hot, and to see also the exhibition when it is dark and the exhibits are lighted.
The Dinosaurs and Ice Age Exhibition is located at the garden of Eretz Israel museum in Ramat Aviv. It is accessible, but there’s a bit of a walk, some up/downhill to get to the exhibition area that is located at the western part of the garden.
The Dinosaurs and Ice Age Exhibition will be open during the months of July and August 2016. Prices start around 81 NIS. The exhibition website offers family tickets.
