The terrifying roar of the Tyrannosaurus Rex.

The ferociousness of the Velociraptior.

Nothing could be more awe-inspiring than the size and sounds of the prehistoric animals that are on display at the Reading Public Museum all this month.

You'll see huge, life-like, cutting-edge animatronic versions of dinosaurs - each outfitted with cameras, sensors and artificial intelligence - react to your every mood. Travel back in time 67 million years to explore the world of the cretaceous period when the infamous TRex roamed the earth. It is sure to be a heart-pounding encounter and amaze anyone who comes near.

The show is not scripted - no two visitors will have the same experience. The colossal dinosaurs track guests in real-time, responding based on the actions of each individual, and even interact among themselves. Experience firsthand what it's like to be stalked by prehistoric creatures as they react to your every move! Included in this exhibition are TRex, a Triceratops adult and its nest of eggs/juveniles and two velociraptors.

This exhibition also features a 'Dinosaur Dig' for children, a special display of fossils and other specimens from its own collection, as well as a historical timeline.

Due to the overwhelming popularity of the current exhibition, Dinosaurs: T-Rex Face-to-Face, the Reading Public Museum will be open 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Mondays throughout the month of August and on Labor Day, Sept. 3, 2012, in addition to its regular schedule.

'The Museum is usually not open on Mondays, but attendance numbers have been so high, we want to make sure everybody gets a chance to experience this amazing exhibition before it closes at 5 p.m. on Labor Day,' said John Graydon Smith, Director and CEO. 'As of this past weekend, our year-to-date figures are at 29,872, already surpassing last year's total attendance.'

Dinosaurs: T-Rex Face-to-Face, continues through Monday, Sept. 3, 2012. Visitors see huge, realistic, cutting-edge robotic versions of dinosaurs - each outfitted with cameras, sensors and artificial intelligence - react to their every mood. Families can also enjoy a 'Dinosaur Dig' for children, a special display of fossils and other specimens from The Museum's own collection, as well as a historical timeline.
