The Diplodocus Dinosaurs

MOSI is one of a handful of museums in the world to display one of the largest articulated dinosaurs ever discovered. Sauropods were the colossus of their age, some tipping the scales at a full forty tons. Despite their massive size, they had only a tiny brain - the smallest brain in relation to its bulk of any vertebrate. They were plant eaters and their long necks enabled them to pick food from high in the trees where others couldn't reach. Their long tails helped to balance their very long necks, making it possible for some to reach as high as five stories. The sauropods that occupy MOSI's lobby reach three stories with a total combined length of approximately 150 feet.



MaxFlight Simulator

 The two-seater is ready to duel! FS2000 Jet Fighter Simulator* is part of an all new, sleek squadron of indoor Virtual Reality fighter-jet rides. Each is poised for the sharp banks, sky loops and screaming dives of pulse-pounding aerial combat and all are completely controlled by the pilots themselves! 


Minimum height for the MaxFlight Simulator – 48”

And weight maximum (combined weight of two people) – 500lbs.


*Not included with general admission. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the MOSI Ticket Office.
