OKLAHOMA CITY -

Science Museum Oklahoma is giving visitors a chance to experience a miniature version of Jurassic Park.

"Red Dirt Dinos" features three animatronic dinosaurs that lived in our state millions of years ago, including the official state dinosaur who was named after a county in Oklahoma.

All three are built with video game technology that detects movement, so they can react to people and other dinosaurs in the exhibit.

"People can learn a little bit about Oklahoma's history, a little bit of the fossils of our past, and about what it takes to be a scientist," said Sherry Marshall, Director of the Oklahoma Museum Network.

Red Dirt Dinos opens Monday.

The exhibit also has a paleontologist's tent and some tools, an egg scanner, the big-mouth Dino-slide and a giant crawl-through log.
