Sea Monsters: A Prehistoric Adventure now playing at the Omnimax at the Saint Louis Science Center is a great film and on a cold January a great afternoon.  The Saint Louis Science Center offers special discounts for the Omnimax when you also visit Body Worlds 3, another amazing exhibit at the Science Center.

A preview of the Sea Monsters movie is now available, although a You Tube video on a computer can in no way compare to the power and impact of the Omnimax 180 degree screen.  If you are going to see Body Worlds – worth checking out this new Omnimax movie by the National Geographic Society. 

Visit the Saint Louis Science Center web site for ticket information and be sure to ask about combination package.

Sea Monsters Spotted at Saint Louis Science Center

If you are making the trip to the Saint Louis Science Center for Body Worlds 3, you should also check out Sea Monsters: A Prehistoric Adventure now playing at the Omnimax.  Great film on the big 180 degree screen and you get $2 off admission when you also visit Body Worlds 3.

Eighty million years ago, Earth was a very different place. Europe was small group of Islands and places like U.S. Midwest were completely underwater. Sea Monsters: A Prehistoric Adventure transports viewers back to this world and brings them face to face with the dinosaurs of the deep.

Sea Monsters follows a family of Dolichorhynchops , also known as “Dollies,” as they swim ancient waters inhabited by fascinating creatures like saber-toothed fish, prehistoric sharks, and giant squid. Audiences will discover how scientists have been able to identify the physical and behavioral characteristics of these animals with the help of modern-day technologies. Using evidence such as shark teeth found throughout central United States, paleontologists are able to gain a better understanding of our planet in the dinosaur age. By studying remains left behind, investigators can also piece clues together that tell the story of how these dinosaurs lived, what they ate, and what they looked like. Moviegoers also visit the excavation sites where evidence such as fossils and bones are discovered, as scientists work to re-create the world of Sea Monsters .

Body Worlds 3, the amazing exhibition at the Saint Louis Science Center will leave Saint Louis in a few short weeks.  The exhibition of real human bodies that have undergone the Plastination process has brought record crowds to the Science Center over the last few months.

Checking with the Science Center staff, there are still many tickets available but it is expected that more popular times will sell out as the curtain draws to a close.

For those who have not seen the show it is awesome and well worth the price of admission – definitely one of those opportunities in life you don’t want to miss.
