Twenty dramatically-lit dinosaur skeletons and robots, up to more than 60 feet in length, illustrate new scientific discoveries that are allowing us to learn much more about these amazing life forms.World's Giant Dinosaurs provides a broad and exciting survey of these fascinating creatures, including meat eaters and plant eaters, large and small.
