    ICE DINOSAURS: The Lost World of the Alaskan Arctic

    This new traveling exhibition features newly discovered Arctic-dwelling dinosaurs never-before-seen in an exhibition. Built around groundbreaking discoveries expanding the traditional understanding of dinosaur physiology, provinciality, and migration, Ice Dinosaurs invites visitors to learn about the unique adaptations of polar dinosaurs while interacting with real fossils and museum-grade casts.




Created in collaboration with world-renowned dinosaur paleontologists Dr. Gregory M. Erickson (faculty at Florida State University at Tallahassee) and Dr. Patrick Druckenmiller (Director of the University of Alaska Museum of the North and Professor of Geology at the University of Alaska Fairbanks), Ice Dinosaurs transports visitors to the Late Cretaceous period above the Arctic Circle, where dinosaurs lived year-round in extreme polar environments. Follow a year in the life of a family of Troodons (large-brained, agile, feathered “raptors”) and learn how these creatures survived in 4–5 months of total sunlight and 5–6 months of complete darkness.

Challenging long-held beliefs in the scientific community of dinosaurs as cold-blooded, reptilian, and tropical-dwelling, Ice Dinosaurs uses immersive scenery, interactive elements, and educational concepts to unveil the unprecedented scientific evidence that warm-blooded, non-migratory dinosaurs thrived above the Arctic Circle.


Exhibition Includes:

  • 20 animatronic dinosaurs
  • 17 static creatures
  • 4 museum-grade casts
  • 12 additional fossils...
  • Dinosaurs, fish, and mammals, many of which are NEW to science

Ice Dinosaurs is based on the research of paleontologists Dr. Gregory Erickson (Florida State University) and Dr. Patrick Druckenmiller (University of Alaska, Fairbanks), co-Directors of the Arctic Paleo-Research Consortium (ARPC), a multi-national group of professional and citizen scientists who seek to unravel the mysteries of dinosaurian polar occupation. Portions of the profits from this exhibition will be donated to the APRC to continue this groundbreaking research.
