“Welcome to Jurassic Park,” John Hammond proclaimed in the opening minutes of the first Jurassic Park film, which was released back in 1993. While the fictional CEO of InGen was welcoming guests to his horrifying, dino-packed theme park in the scene, he could just as easily have been greeting guests at Guangdong Science Center, which is currently hosting a world-class dinosaur exhibit.

Titled The World’s Largest Dinosaurs, this fascinating exhibition is from the American Museum of Natural History and introduces Guangzhouers to sauropods (long-neck dinos), including a life-sized replica of the gigantic Mamenchisaurus.

In addition to fossils and models, the showcase also features interactive displays and activities. One such exhibit allows guests to use their hands to ‘pump blood’ for a sauropod dinosaur, to better understand the massive pressure required to move blood up their long necks to their heads.

The World’s Largest Dinosaurs has been running for less than a month, and will be held until early October.

So, if you’re bored this week and interested in learning more about dinosaurs, you know where to go! If you’re lazy (aren’t we all these days?) and can’t be bothered to brave the heat and leave your apartment, just read our awesome three-part series on China’s prehistoric past.
