The fantasy that drives sleepovers and fires the imagination of every museum visitor sits at the very heart of Museum Alive 3D: what if the exhibits came to life? In this dramatic, informative, and captivating film, audiences follow one lucky visitor who stays in the museum after dark and sees some of the most fascinating, extinct, prehistoric creatures rise again. Dinosaurs, a sabre-tooth cat, giant birds, and monster reptiles escape their display cases, shake off the dust, and explore the museum, by means of stunning special effects. And far from being just fantasy, everything in Museum Alive 3D is firmly rooted in the latest science, through a unique collaboration between leading paleontologists and award-winning computer animators. Audiences will be treated to a thrilling, spectacular film that both educates and entertains—because as the lights go down, the past comes roaring back to life!
