The Dinosaurs of Jurassic Park

No Longer Touring A traveling exhibition based on the movie, Jurassic Park and the predecessor to the popular traveling exhibit, The Dinosaurs of Jurassic Park: The Lost World. Produced by advisor to the film, Don Lessem, and film dinosaur replica creator, Peter May, it donated proceeds to the Dinosaur Society and the American Museum of Natural History.

Information

After filming had ended for Jurassic Park, Lessem asked director Steven Spielberg what was to be done with the leftover props used in the film, to which Steven replied "I don't know. You want it?" Lessem then came up with the idea of creating the exhibit as a charitable trust with profits going to the Dinosaur Society to fund dinosaur fossil hunting expeditions from around the world.

The exhibit first opened in conjunction with the movie at the American Museum of Natural History.

Components

The traveling exhibit featured dinosaurs such as Tyrannosaurus rex, Velociraptor, Brachiosaurus, and Struthiomimus, who filled in the role of Gallimimus from the film.
