"Travel to Isla Nublar as a VIP guest and explore Jurassic World," said a news release announcing the exhibit Tuesday. "Stare in wonder at a towering Brachiosaurus; come face-to-face with a Velociraptor; and get a rare up-close look at the most vicious dinosaur of them all, Tyrannosaurus rex."

Besides robotic dinos, the exhibit also is looking to add an educational element with interactive features that look at dinosaur DNA, said the museum.

The exhibit costs range from $17.95 to $34.95 depending on when you visit the museum and if you go with a group or not. (Prices are less for members.) You can sign up for presale tickets now. General admission tickets go on sale Sept. 10. [[238904721, C]]
