See a skeleton of a gigantic 150,000,000-year-old dinosaur

Place: The Dubai Mall in Dubai, United Arab Emirates

This archaeological artifact surpasses all others of the same kind, because the skeleton of the 150,000,000-year-old dinosaur is almost entirely made of original bones. This is the most complete skeleton of a dinosaur in the world.

In 2008, the remains of a Diplodocus were found in the American state of Wyoming and shipped to Dubai. Since 2014 the dinosaur skeleton has been a decoration in the main atrium of the Dubai Mall. The exhibit impresses visitors not only by its age and originality, but also by its dimensions – the height of the skeleton is 7 meters, and its length is about 25 meters.

Location: Downtown Dubai near Burj Khalifa

Open hours: Sunday - Wednesday from 10:00 am to 23:00 pm; Thursday - Saturday from 10:00 am to 23:59 pm

Phone: 800 38224 6255 (800-DUBAI-MALL)
