Two of the three phases of the project are complete, and the rest of the work is scheduled to be done within a month. Schmidt Nichols Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning, also in West Palm Beach, was the landscape architectural firm for the venture. Right: Realistic, animatronic dinosaurs were placed throughout the museum, spurring excitement for children. The brightly colored creatures blink, roar, open their mouths, shake their heads and sway their tails. They range in size from about 3' tall and 15" long to 16' tall and 45' long. Gregory Erickson was the paleontologist from Florida State University who was consulted for the task of making the dinos as real as possible. An archeological dig pit for children to hunt for their own dinosaur bones is also within the museum.
